  • Wilde's Women one of three finalists in American Book Fest Best Book Awards 2017 .

    10 Nov 2017

    Eleanor Fitzsimons’s Wilde’s Women was one of three finalists in the Biography category of the American Book Fest Best Book Awards 2017 .

    Her book was described as

    A fresh, revealing, and entertaining account of the most notorious figure of his age and the women who inspired him….Wilde’s Women is the first book to tell the story of the female family members, friends, and colleagues who traded witticisms with Wilde, who gave him access to vital publicity, and to whose ideas he gave expression through his social comedies.

    In this essential new work, Eleanor Fitzsimons reframes Wilde’s story and his legacy through the women in his life, including such scintillating figures as Florence Balcombe; actress Lillie Langtry; and his tragic and witty niece, Dolly, who, like Wilde, loved fast cars, cocaine, and foreign women. Fresh revealing, and entertaining, full of fascinating detail and anecdotes, Wilde’s Women relates the untold story of how a beloved writer and libertine played a vitally sympathetic role on behalf of many women, and how they supported him in the midst of a Victorian society in the process of changing forever.
