--Kathryn Schulz, New York Magazine
Splendid...The only thing unbelievable about Nellie Bly is that it's taken this long for her work to be recognized--and with a life story this rich, where is the biopic? Thanks to this new collection at least, Bly's life work will be accessible for a whole new world of readers.
--The Daily Beast
From the start, Bly is a natural writer. Her voice is caustic and confident, lilting effortlessly between the gush and private wonder of a schoolgirl's diary and the rigor of the most celebrated political reporters of her time.
--The New Inquiry
"If you've never read any of 19th-century journalist Nellie Bly's work, this is the place to start. And if you're a longtime fan of the first 'girl stunt reporter, ' this is definitely a tome worth adding to your library.... [Bly] made indelible observations about a woman's place in the world that are no less valuable today than they were 150 years ago."
The editing is outstanding, providing the backstory for this important but all too often neglected figure in American journalism.
