Well-Behaved Woman (Fowler) - Book Reviews

Book Reviews
(Starred review) As accomplished as its subject, redoubtable socialite and women’s suffrage crusader Alva Vanderbilt Belmont, Fowler’s engrossing successor to 2013’s Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald, again showcases her genius for seeing beyond the myths of iconic women.
Publishers Weekly


With you-are-there immediacy fueled by assured attention to biographical detail and deft weaving
of labyrinthine intrigue, Fowler creates a thoroughly credible imagining of the challenges and
emotional turmoil facing this fiercely independent woman.
Booklist


(Starred review) Portrait of the Gilded Age socialite and suffragist who famously followed her own advice: "First marry for money, then marry for love."…Watching Fowler's heroine vanquish the gatekeepers and minions who stand in her way is nothing short of mesmerizing.
