Queen of Bohemia: The Life of Louise Bryant.
by [Radical Women] Dearborn, Mary V.

Publisher Information:
Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston: 1996.

A Fine tight copy in a Fine, unclipped dust jacket. Louis Bryant was an American journalist and writer. She was best known for her Marxist and anarchist beliefs and her essays on radical political and feminist themes. Bryant met journalist John Reed in Portland, Oregon while he was visiting his family after attending Harvard and moving in "Radical" circles of the Village in New York CIty. Louise moved with him to New York City, and together they traveled to Russia in 1917 where they witnessed the October Revolution. Both published books about the event, Reed's Ten Days that Shook the World and Bryant's Six Red Months in Russia. Bryant was with Reed when he died of typhus in 1920. Bryant was part of the expatriate community in Paris in the 20s, eventually aligning herself with lesbian circles which cost her her marriage to American diplomat William Bullitt and custody of her only child. She died in 1936 of a rare disease characterized by painful tissue growths.
