Summary
"During the late Victorian and Edwardian periods, American women expatriates helped populate Britain's literary, theatrical, and arts scenes. Varied in their motivation and talents, these women were educated, nearly all moneyed, and distinctive for being American, which made them outsiders free from many of the social constraints that kept English women in check. Drawing on correspondence, reviews, and articles of the day, records from womens' clubs, and other documentary sources, Jane Gabin pieces together the lives and careers of one such group of American women living in London between 1870 and the end of WWI."--BOOK JACKET
