Product description


Caroline Brettell has written a vivid evocation of journalist Zoe Bieler's life. Her admiration for her subject as professional role model as well as mother is clear-but never sentimentalized. In the best academic traditions, the book is well grounded buy very readable. -- Linda Wagner-Martin, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill This is a compelling portrait of a mid-twentieth century working mother's life, lovingly told by her daughter. Brettell brings her considerable skills as a cultural anthropologist to the story of her late mother. Drawing upon diaries, letters, oral histories, her own recollections, and her mother's journalistic writings, Brettell intelligently creates an ethnographic biography that conveys both the life story of Zoe and the world in which she lived. A significant contribution to the study of women's lives-no less because it portrays a supportive and loving mother-daughter relationship-this book will appeal to a broad spectrum of readers. -- Deborah Reed-Danahay, University of Texas at Arlington Caroline Brettell offers the ultimate daughter's gift: becoming an author so that her mother will continue to live through her. Her book will inspire other daughters, as it inspired me, not to dawdle in their own quests to learn how their mothers made history. -- Ruth Behar, University of Michigan
