Today we're thrilled to welcome Lauren Willig to Heroes and Heartbreakers. Lauren's latest release, The Other Daughter, came out on July 21 and features a young woman whose future has been undeniable rocked when she finds out she's not only lost her mother, but she's not exactly legitimate. What's a girl to do but reinvent herself in the party-scene of 1920s London. Lauren is here today to talk about the 10 signs that you might be a '20s party girl. Thanks, Lauren!
The papers called them the Bright Young People. They racketed around London in taxis; they threw parties with every theme they could imagine and some you wish they hadn’t (Circus parties, Bath & Bottle parties, Impersonation parties, Second Childhood parties); they bobbed their hair; drank champagne like water; and watched the sun rise over the Thames as they came home from yet another night that began at the Gargoyle Club and ended with bacon butties and strong coffee in the cabbies’ shelters. One has to wonder what the cabbies thought about that… But, being London cabbies, they had probably seen it all before.
