Reviews

"Striking and unique... captivating readers by twining simple, evocative text with a stunning array of images." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) "With Century Girl, Lauren Redniss creates an entirely new genre of biography." -- Nylon magazine "Lauren Redniss takes a graphically provocative approach in telling [Doris Eaton Travis's] story." -- Daily News "My favorite new book this year... a visually dazzling melange... unlike anything I've ever seen before." -- Slate (best books of 2006 pick) "Not only did Doris Eaton Travis break records for accomplishment and humanity, she also had great hair and shoes." -- Isaac Mizrahi "The opposite of a page-turner: it's a page-stopper, a page-savorer, in short: an unmitigated delight." -- Lawrence Weschler, author of Mr. Wilson's Cabinet of Wonder and Everything that Rises: A Book of Convergences "Doris Eaton is the darling of Broadway, a New York treasure." -- Nils Hanson, National Ziegfeld Club "I wish Lauren Redniss would write and illustrate my biography in the dreamy, luminous way she did Doris Eaton Travis's." -- Maira Kalman, author and illustrator
