I’ve always been more or less obsesssed with the Jazz Age. It started when I was ten and has never left me. Lately I’ve been toying with the idea of starting a new novel set smack dab in the middle of all that smoking, drinking, dancing and speakeasy era. I love the music, fashion, slang and movies of the 1920’s so immersing myself in the past will hardly be a chore. After all, a writer has to be accurate with regard to those devilish details.
I’m dropping three videos for Sunday to show you just how fantastic it was back then when women got the vote, cut their hair, starting smoking, drank gin and burned their corsets. The world has never been the same. 😉 I think we may be due for a new Jazz Age, whaddya think?
And of course, what were the twenties without Hollywood and the women of the silver screen?
You can’t do the Roaring Twenties without Ms. Bessie Smith!
