A Well-Behaved Woman

A Well-Behaved Woman

From the bestselling author of Z - a novel of Zelda Fitzgerald, Therese Fowler´s new novel goes back to the origins of the Jazz Age - the Gilded Age of New York Society in the late 19th/early 20th century - with a the page-turning and sympathetic account of Alva Vanderbilt - the woman who challenged New York Society.
´This is a wonderful book! Fowler´s portrait is so nuanced, so complicated by context, and so informed by her own capacious generosity that we can´t help being drawn in´ Karen Joy Fowler, author of We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves

OUTSPOKEN. BRAVE. BRILLIANT. FIERCE.

Alva Smith, her Southern family destitute after the Civil War, married into one of America´s great Gilded Age dynasties: the newly wealthy but socially shunned Vanderbilts. Ignored by New York´s old-money circles and determined to win respect, she designed and built nine mansions, hosted grand balls, and arranged for her daughter to marry a duke. But Alva also defied convention for women of her time, asserting power within her marriage and becoming a leader in the women´s suffrage movement.

With a nod to Jane Austen and Edith Wharton, Therese Anne Fowler paints a glittering world of enormous wealth contrasted against desperate poverty, of social ambition and social scorn, of friendship and betrayal, and an unforgettable story of a remarkable woman.

GOOD BEHAVIOUR WILL ONLY GET A WOMAN SO FAR.
