The Scrapbook of Frankie Pratt by Caroline Preston

What a unique book. Frankie Pratt's story is told through a series of colorful scrapbook pages detailing her early love life after graduating from Vassar through the travels to Paris where she meets literary legends. I was especially surprised by the archival photographs and connections with Edna St. Vincent Millay and Sylvia Beach's Shakespeare and Co. I had read Gatsby's Girl by Preston a few years back, but this book is a visual as well as literary journey
