Stephany at MaudNewton.com has the details on a show of art by Zelda Fitzgerald in New York through November 7.

I was recently moved by Marion Meade's description of Zelda's attempts to become a writer (and a ballerina, among other things), in her excellent Bobbed Hair and Bathtub Gin. It's a history, more or less, of the 1920s and the intertwining lives of Zelda Fitzgerald, Dorothy Parker, Edna St. Vincent Millay and Edna Ferber during a heady time in American History. Highly recommended.

Also fabulous: The Nancy Milford bio of Zelda with the peacock feathers on the cover.
