"Miss Anne" a Publishers Weekly Top 10 of 2013

Miss Anne in Harlem has been selected by Publishers Weekly as one of its "Top 10 Books of 2013"!

They write:

In this beautifully written, empathetic, and valuable addition to the history of the Harlem Renaissance, scholar Kaplan (Zora Neale Hurston: A Life in Letters) presents the untold story of six notable white women (including Fannie Hurst and Nancy Cunard, members of a larger group known collectively as "Miss Anne") who embraced black culture—and life—in Harlem in the 1920s and '30s, serving as hostesses, patrons, activists, comrades, lovers, writers, and editors.
