In the early- and mid-twentieth century, Elsie Robinson was one of the most beloved writers in America: a syndicated columnist with an audience in the tens of millions, a pioneering illustrator, and (though she would have shunned the word) a fierce feminist. Listen, World! seeks to rekindle the memory of this remarkable woman, from her misbegotten first marriage to a rich widower to her years digging for gold in the mines of California with a second partner and the gradual discovery that she could support herself and her son through her writing. The tragedies and triumphs of Elsie's life make for surprisingly gripping reading, and the authors embroider the text with selections from her columns that showcase her uniquely poetic voice. (BH)
