Praise for Josephine Baker's Last Dance

"Sherry Jones takes us on a remarkable journey of heartbreak and empowerment. Josephine Baker's Last Dance is a bold and beautiful book about a bold and beautiful life. This book left its mark on me."--Susan Crandall, author of The Myth of Perpetual Summer
"The mesmerizing chanteuse who shattered race barriers and hearts across the world is brought to vivid, unstoppable life in Josephine Baker's Last Dance. The champagne swirl of the Jazz Age fuels this amazing, untold story of a defiant woman who fought her way from poverty to become the toast of Europe, infamous for her bawdy act and banana-peel-barely-there skirt. Jones's Josephine is complicated and human: a courageous artist on a quest for freedom under the haunting legacy of race inequality; she emerges as not only a fantastic icon from the past in her own right, but also as a mirror and example for today. "--C.W. Gortner, author of Mademoiselle Chanel
