Summary
"From Mary Wollstonecraft--who, for decades after her death, was more famous for her illegitimate child and suicide attempts than for A Vindication of the Rights of Woman--to Charlotte Brontë, Billie Holiday, Sylvia Plath, and even Hillary Clinton, [this book] dissects a centuries-old phenomenon and asks what it means now, in a time when we have unprecedented access to celebrities and civilians alike, and when women are pushing harder than ever against the boundaries of what it means to 'behave'"--Amazon.com
Summary
A historical look at the "trainwreck," famous women who are best known for their transgressions, including Sylvia Plath, Whitney Houston, Billie Holiday, and Harriet Jacobs
