"Friedman does an excellent job of telling the story of an extraordinary woman, Claire Myers Owens—a model, as Friedman states, of ‘selfdefined womanhood,’ who was as passionate to define herself in old age as she was in youth."—Carol Kolmerten, author of The American Life of Ernestine L. Rose

"Friedman brings the fascinating life of Claire Myers Owens to light. This rich history of a white, middleclass, privileged southern woman who left home and traditional ways behind at age 20 for adventures in New York examines her prolific writings as a ‘New Woman’ as well as her late-in-life search for spiritual meaning in Zen Buddhism."—Sara Alpern, author of Freda Kirchwey: A Woman of "The Nation"
