Emily Bingham: Irrepressible

Irrepressible.jpg
Irrepressible: The Jazz Age Life of Henrietta Bingham by Emily Bingham

Raised like a princess in one of the most powerful families in the American South, Henrietta Bingham was offered the helm of a publishing empire. Instead, she ripped through the Jazz Age like an F. Scott Fitzgerald character: intoxicating and intoxicated, selfish and shameless, seductive and brilliant, endearing and often terribly troubled.

For biographer and historian Emily Bingham, the secret of who her great-aunt was, and just why her story was concealed for so long, led to the creation of Irrepressible: The Jazz Age Life of Henrietta Bingham.
