Herda, D. J.

Big-Bang Baby Boomer Electric Shock Sex Machine: How three women changed the face of literature and reinvented the world     France’s Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette fights the Battle for Sexual Rights as New York’s Dorothy Parker confronts her own emerging sexuality during her quest for truth, justice, and a new American Way of life.  Along the way, Anais Nin, resting in the wings with her recently acquired sexual gauntlet, batters literature into a new Sexual Revelation—each remarkable woman influenced by the successes and the failures, the joys and the heartbreaks of the others.


Ghosts at the Round Table: A Telling Alliance--
Sacco and Vanzetti at the Gonk
Dorothy Parker is the most unlikely of radicals.  But the author who pens “Men don’t make passes / at girls who wear glasses” has much more on her mind than clever witticisms when she lobbies fellow Round Tablers to the defense of accused killers Sacco and Vanzetti.  For more than six years, she carries the banner against America’s paranoia and disgrace.  In the end, it is Parker—and not two Italian-born anarchist immigrants—who pays the greatest price of all for her integrity.
