"You'll never look at a Dorothea Lange photograph the same way after reading Jasmin Darznik's compelling portrait of the trailblazer who carved a glorious path through 1920s San Francisco. Darznik doesn't flinch when confronting the parallels to today, whether racism or anti-immigrant sentiment, yet her impeccable research grounds the story firmly in the heyday of the Jazz Age."--Fiona Davis, New York Times bestselling author of The Lions of Fifth Avenue "In her riveting and resonant new novel, Jasmin Darznik captures San Francisco's heyday through the eyes of one of its most iconic residents. By exploring how Dorothea Lange witnessed her troubled and momentous times, Darznik speaks directly to our own."--Anthony Marra, New York Times bestselling author of A Constellation of Vital Phenomena "Dorothea Lange once famously said, 'art is an act of total attention.' Jasmin Darznik's breathtaking novel The Bohemians accomplishes that and more. Not only did it have me riveted from start to finish, through her words, history powerfully speaks to the present moment."--Lara Prescott, New York Times bestselling author of The Secrets We Kept
