    MOBI Almost Famous Women MOBI ß Almost Famous Epub / ô catalizadores.co ô almost epub, famous free, women ebok, Almost Famous book, Almost Famous Women MOBII will admit to spending uite a bit of time looking up many of the people these stories were written about All exceedingly well written though but there were two that really resonated with me The two about the oldest and the youngest Romaine remains after a fully decadent life Romaine is now 93 and housebound The people who are hired to care for her take advantage of her in many ways Something about being that elderly and becoming a victim after living a life on virtually her own terms just filled me with pityThe second story was the story of Allegra Byron which starts when she is three So incredibly sad this young lady and her short tragic life Loved the author for imagining someone who really loved her and tried to care for her show her a little joy Found myself hoping such a person actually existedAnyway there is something her

    MOBI Almost Famous Women MOBI ß Almost Famous Epub / ô catalizadores.co ô almost epub, famous free, women ebok, Almost Famous book, Almost Famous Women MOBIThese are thirteen stories about extraordinary women whose “lives were reduced to footnotes” My two favorites featured Allegra Byron Lord Byron’s illegitimate daughter and Butterfly Mcueen an actress who played one of the maids in Gone with the Wind All of the stories offer an unusual combination of grit and sensitivity Most feature these women when they’re well past their primes giving the whole collection a melancholy feel that kept me from wanting to read too many stories at once there’s a lot of sagging flesh drug addictions and wasted dreams But I highly recommend checking this collection out – Bergman is incredibly talented

    MOBI Almost Famous Women MOBI ß Almost Famous Epub / ô catalizadores.co ô almost epub, famous free, women ebok, Almost Famous book, Almost Famous Women MOBIMy first reaction to the book was one of an indifferent feeling of laissez faire The first note to self asked and what is the point exactly?What was the purpose of the book was my uestion after reading the first few essays Was it a creative writing class assignment at one point in time? Write an essay on the life of any historical female icon in which you capture the essence of her being as though she appeared in a dream to you Capture the person in the personality Use carte blanche to weave tales around the woman based on their true life stories Climb into their lives Become a close friend Create bytes of some definitive moments and bring these women alive to generations who never knew them Have fun Or something like thatInitially the book did not make me piro

    MOBI Almost Famous Women MOBI ß Almost Famous Epub / ô catalizadores.co ô almost epub, famous free, women ebok, Almost Famous book, Almost Famous Women MOBII absolutely LOVED this one I'm usually not a fan of short story collections For me they just don't work well together This book however is the exception I devoured this book and would've finished it in one setting if I had the time Each story represents a fictionalized account of an almost famous woman I was fascinated intrigued and interested in reading about these amazing women Some impactful than others but savored each one for what it was It would be extremely difficult for me to even choose a favorite

    MOBI Almost Famous Women MOBI ß Almost Famous Epub / ô catalizadores.co ô almost epub, famous free, women ebok, Almost Famous book, Almost Famous Women MOBII read this one story at a time over several days and weeks The short stories not my favorite thing are about women who have a brush with fame as the name implies such as two women known only for being conjoined twins or a wealthy heiress who had a relationship with Marlena Dietrich or the sister of Edna St Vincent Millay etc I didn't think these almost famous women were given much background information their stories are really just touched upon in these short stories and some of the stories didn't even say who the women were or why I should care to know about them I was compelled to look up every one of them on Wiki and felt the author was making me work too hardAll were strong willed passionate women who take risks in their lives and leave their own marks big or small I was glad the book brought them to light but wish it had given each a bit substance depth 2 stars for me means It
