From the witty Algonquin Round Table writer, Edna Feber, comes this semi-autobiographical coming-of-age novel. Fanny Herself follows the trials of a young Jewish woman as she finds her feet in early twentieth-century America.

In constant self-comparison to her mother, Fanny is trying to find a balance between her artistic aspirations and her dream of being an entrepreneurial businesswoman. She is a sensitive woman who struggles to thrive when her small successes are so heavily overshadowed by her brother’s music career. But Fanny is determined, surrounded by good friends, and has an incredibly strong will to achieve her dreams.

First published in 1917, Fanny Herself is surprisingly modern and full of Edna Ferber’s well-known warmth and wit. This early feminist novel is the perfect read for those who enjoyed the Emma McChesney trilogy. Complete with an introductory excerpt by Rogers Dickinson.
