Riassunto: ?Anyone who reads her will never forget her voice.? - Biographile Mary MacLane (1881-1929) was the first of the modern media personalities: a pioneer in self-revelation, in defiance of established rules, in living on her own terms - and writing it in brilliant style. At age 19 she burst upon the world out of Butte, Montana with a journal of private thoughts and longings that incited national then international attention. In the books and newspaper articles that followed she evolved a completely new, individual voice decades ahead of its time. She influenced Gertrude Stein, inspired F. Scott Fitzgerald, and was hotly discussed by everyday people - and America?s biggest writers. Yet despite sparking film, stage, and music projects today - and being endlessly quoted on the Internet - the writer behind the writing has remained unknown until now. HUMAN DAYS: A MARY MACLANE READER features the complete texts of all her books (with expurgated passages restored), her colorful newspaper articles (much never before reprinted), an intriguing 1902 interview, the first viewing ever of her striking personal letters, illuminating introductions to each era in her life, and comprehensive notes that open the door to her influences and the age she came from and impacted so profoundly. A foreword from actress Bojana Novakovic provides a contemporary artist?s creative appreciation of the author?s still-powerful effect upon readers. ?Mary MacLane comes off the page quivering with life. Moving.? - London Times ?She reminds us of the power of personal narrative, honestly told.? - The Atlantic ?In a pre-soundbite age she already knew how to draw blood in one direct sentence.? - The Awl ?She had a short but fiery life of writing and misadventure, and her writing was a template for the confessional memoirs that have become ubiquitous.? - The New Yorker ?One of the most fascinatingly self-involved personalities of the 20th century.? - The Age ?A girl wonder.? - Harper?s ?Confessional journalists have people like Mary MacLane to thank.? - Flavorwire ?Her diaries ignited a national uproar, ushering in a new era for women?s voices. Her elegant, ambitious embrace of full-disclosure opened a door to what was possible for women.? - The Atlantic ?Fiery frankness made her a pioneer.? - Time Out Chicago ?Her poetry is one of extremes: lust for happiness, despair for life.? - Hairy Dog Review ?Riveting.? - N.H. Public Radio ?I Await the Devil?s Coming is a small masterpiece, full of camp and swagger.? - Parul Sehgal, NPR ?Pioneering newswoman, later silent-screen star, considered the veritable spirit of the iconoclastic Twenties.? - Boston Globe ?A pioneering feminist - a sensation.? - Feminist Bookstore News ?First of the self-expressionists, and the first of the Flappers.? - Chicagoan Check for exclusive content, news, and previews.

L'autore: Mary MacLane (1881-1929) was a controversial Canadian-born American writer whose frank memoirs helped usher in the confessional style of autobiographical writing. She was known as the "Wild Woman of Butte". MacLane was a very popular author for her time, scandalizing the populace with her shocking bestselling first memoir and to a lesser extent her two following books. She was considered wild and uncontrolled, a reputation she nurtured, and was openly bisexual as well as a vocal feminist. In her writings, she compared herself to another frank young memoirist, Marie Bashkirtseff, who died a few years after MacLane was born, and H.L. Mencken called her, "the Butte Bashkirtseff." - from
