Pocket 78523 The Nympho and Other Maniacs NF
The Nympho And Other Maniacs
By Irving Wallace
A long title with an even longer subtitle: "The Lives, the Loves and the Sexual Adventures of Some Scandalous and Liberated Ladies".Herewith part of a review by Gwen Chabot Muir:
"Wallace looks at women who for whatever the reason were considered outside of the norm from their times.
"Yes, females who exert their power through sex are discussed. Pauline Bonaparte and the courtesan known as Ninon are two examples. The infamous ancestress of the former Ambassador Pamela Churchill Harriman, the Honorable Jane Digby and her adventures is a particularly interesting chapter, making the reader race for the biography section of the local bookstore or library to learn more about a women who enchanted men up until her death.
"But sex is not the only mania covered. The latter chapters cover little remember figures such as Anne Royall (placed on trial for being a scold), Victoria Woodhull (the infamous financial "wizard" who was accused of prostitution and ran for President before women had the vote) and the woman who spent her life trying to prove William Shakespeare was only a cover for writers such as Francis Bacon and William Spenser."
