|Our Hearts Were Young and Gay|
by Cornelia Otis Skinner and Emily Kimbrough
Light, breezy and uncomplicated
Silly, and carefree
Emily and Cornelia head off to Europe for a girl's trip in the 1920's. These two naive young women contend with bed bugs,brothels, and measles.( And that's just the first third of the book!) I read where a friend called these two gals 'disaster-magnets'!!! What a great description.
A travel memoir from the 1920's that is innocent and engaging.
I couldn't do a whole diet of this genre, but it was a yummy little appetizer full of remembered memories of two friends whose relationship only deepened over time.
Look....I finished a book!!
