really liked it
bookshelves: biography, politics, women
Read in December, 2007

Alice's politics were much further to the right than my own, but I still enjoyed reading about her extraordinary life. Ms. Cordery did an excellent job on this biography, which is loaded with color, texture and wit; it also offers some interesting glimpses of early 20th-century politics and the Washington social scene. Although it was a long read, it was well worth my time.
