The Scrapbook of Frankie Pratt

Finished The Scrapbook of Frankie Pratt by Caroline Preston. I found this on the new book table at Nicola's Books in Ann Arbor and I'm so glad I did. The interior is a marvelous and literal collage of life in the 1920s with magazine clippings, photos, ticket stubs and want ads. Along her journey from Vassar to Paris, Frankie receives advice from Edna St. Vincent Millay and helps James Joyce to edit his new book. Finally, she ends up back in her small New Hampshire town, caring for her ailing mother. There she finds everything she ever wanted in her own back yard. A truly delightful and fun read.
