Publisher's Summary

Bernice has rare beauty and wealth, but is undeniably socially awkward. Her cousin Marjorie does her best to make Bernice into a social vampire. Being a socialite in America in the 1920s, it seems to her that some of the more archaic feminine ideals need to go. Bernice's long, luxurious hair may need to go, too.

Who's Afraid of F Scott Fitzgerald ?

Any additional comments?

If you've hesitated to read F Scott Fitzgerald because his novels are so... respected and loved by literary intellectuals, give his short stories a shot. They are friendly, extremely interesting, filled with memorable and easily recognized characters. Bernice Bobs Her Hair is only one of many, so keep in mind that you're getting a one-hour recording, but still well worth your purchase. And funny. Bernice is a typical young woman learning to maneuver through her societies. Whether you picture her in Fitzgerald's early 20th C setting or transport her into current social events, her predicament and solution ring true and delightfully recognizable. I love Fitzgerald for a light short read on a quiet afternoon. (and yeah, the novels are surprisingly approachable--though not as lighthearted--too.)

Original "Mean Girls"!

Interesting short story, a 1920s. "Mean Girls". A great introduction for teenagers to classic literature. Would have had more impact for them if read by a younger female. Well worth listening to, and it makes a real change from longer novels.
