While we don’t judge a book by its cover, the airborne women in flowing Victorian costumes suggest feisty characters live inside, and in this case it’s an accurate foreshadowing! Meet Oscar Wilde’s troubled niece, Edna St. Vincent Millay’s sister, Butterfly McQueen long after Gone With the Wind, and the Hell-Diving Women of an integrated jazz band in the Jim Crow South. Fiction based on fact, Megan Mayhew Berman’s stories are as lively and literate as her first collection, Ferry Building staff favorite Birds of a Lesser Paradise.
