First Tuesday Book Club-June 4th

“The Dressmaker,” by Kate Alcott

                "This novel is as much about the sinking of the Titanic as it is about dressmaking. Written by D.C. journalist Patricia O’Brien under the pen name Kate Alcott, it’s an unashamed girlie-book with a woman’s attractive behind adorning the cover, sporting an elegant semi-bustle. The dress seems to bunch up under the arms, and you can spend several minutes figuring out how someone put the thing together. Which brings up an interesting aspect of “making history,” particularly the kind that Virginia Woolf used to talk about: the flocks of girls with bits of sewing in their laps, chattering about men, defining them, often by bursts of rude laughter. That’s a form of history, too............."WashingtonPost"
