Born in Kalamazoo, Michigan, Edna Ferber (1885-1968) was a novelist, short-story writer, and playwright whose work served as the inspiration for numerous Broadway plays and Hollywood films, including Show Boat, Cimarron, Giant, Saratoga Trunk, and Ice Palace. She co-wrote the plays The Royal Family, Dinner at Eight, and Stage Door with George S. Kaufman and was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1925 for her novel So Big.From AudioFile:
Edna Ferber has been called the greatest American woman novelist of her day. In this 1917 autobiographical story, Ferber creates a ground-breaking heroine of great strength and wit. The lilting and articulate manner with which Suzanne Toren delivers Fanny's adventures recalls the great comedic film heroines--all plucky cleverness, yet possessing a secret heart that only we the audience are privileged to see. Toren gives Fanny a buoyancy in the face of anti-Semitism and societal constraints that makes the heart swell (since we all know she'll come out on top eventually!). FANNY HERSELF is a classic audiobook that keeps you rooting for the good gal from page one. R.A.P. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
