Kurzbeschreibung

"A rare mix of cleverness and intellect, and a total blast to read." -Alan Heathcock, award winning author of VOLT.

"Engaging and revealing, but most of all, flat out funny." -Flashlight Commentary

Essays on drinking with Dorothy Parker, Louisa May Alcott, Jane Austen, Erma Bombeck, The Bronte Sisters, Willa Cather, Emily Dickinson, George Eliot, Margaret Mead, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Margaret Mitchell, Carson McCullers, Flannery O'Connor, Sylvia Plath, Ayn Rand and Virginia Woolf.

Facts about Dead Women Writers:
Most early female writers used pen names because women weren't regarded as competent writers.

Margaret Mitchell wrote only one published novel in her lifetime, but Gone with the Wind won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1937 and sold more than 30 million copies.

Emily Dickinson was so paranoid that she only spoke to people from behind a door.

Carson McCullers wrote The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter at age 22. Her husband wanted them to commit suicide in the French countryside, but she refused.

Ambrose and Turner explore these and other intriguing facts about the most famous (but departed) women in literary history.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Captivating Delight 26. April 2012
Von NEBrisson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I bought this book early this afternoon expecting to enjoy it one story at a time, as I unwind from days with a glass of wine. Instead, I will be re-reading it in this fashion, because I both started and finished the collection this afternoon, sans alcohol. The weaving of the intelligence and wit of the authors with historical facts about their subjects delightfully captured my interest and imagination, and I suspect will continue to do so for many glasses of Red to come. If you enjoy a book that brilliantly balances thought-provoking notions with good laughs, I highly recommend you also try Drinking with Dead Women Writers.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Good idea, mediocre result 30. September 2012
Von Sharon Storm - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The idea is interesting, but it could have been carried out much better. The two authors each meet different deceased women writers for drinks and conversation. The writers include Emily Dickinson, the Bronte sisters, Erma Bombeck, and Jane Austen. Most of the information in the short chapter devoted to each writer (or writers) could be found by searching Wikipedia. Also, the authors spend too much time gushing about how much they admire each of the writers. The only reasons I'm not giving this 1 star are the idea has potential, and I got the e-version free of charge. The authors should have included information about the writers that isn't already widely known, and should have given less attention to their own personal feelings about the writers. Some people might find this entertaining. It didn't grab me. I would have preferred fewer chapters with more details about the writers.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Flashes of Brilliance 22. August 2013
Von MJG - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Drinking with Dead Women Writers By Elaine Ambrose and AK Turner is exactly what the title suggests. The two authors take turns traveling, drinking and interviewing 16 dead female writers like Margaret Meade, Flannery O’Connor and Willa Cather. The deceased’s side of the conversation is composed of their well-known quotations and peppered with their more scandalous manners.

Some of the highlights were: a damp and chilled Virginia Wolfe–still with the stones in her pocket; Dorothy Parker getting raunchy with a bartender; and George Elliot indignantly recounting having been dumped in Highgate with the dissenters and agnostics because Westminster Abby refused to bury her.

This was such an interesting idea, and I really wanted to love it, but for me, the results were inconsistent. The interviews with Emily Dickinson and Sylvia Plath were a drag. Yes, Emily Dickinson was reclusive and strange, but she was also so much more than that. The Louisa May Alcott short was disappointing. I had hoped the spunkier side of her, the side that said, “Money is the means and the ends of my mercenary existence,” would have been presented and mention of her seedier stories about transvestites and drug addicts would have been made.

While occasionally funny and insightful, I would have liked to see more detail and consistency in the quality.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Had Promise... 21. August 2012
Von Shannon M. Mcgee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Two authors take turns writing short stories about different famous women authors who have passed on to the other side. The living author imagines what the conversation ,at a bar with wine, would sound like. They pretend to interview Louisa May Alcott, Margaret Mitchell, Jane Austen, Ann Rynd, and many more.

The idea of having a conversation with a favorite who is dead has potential. Unfortunately each story sounds the same as the last. Each story they drink wine, the deceased author hope that her family got rid of the letter she wrote, and ends after the deceased author is done complaining. I feel the living authors could have explored so much more, maybe about the world now, or ask how being dead was treating them.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Surprisingly Awesome Read 29. August 2012
Von Erin Davies - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Some of you may know that I am addicted to kindle freebies. I'm ashamed to say my digital library is flooded with titles I've downloaded at no charge. Thing is, I've found that most of these books are decent at best. I try to review them, give my honest feedback and all but I've made it a sort of personal mission to find something worth recommending. Usually, I come up short and occasionally I have to concede defeat but I have found reason to hope. Ambrose and Turner's Drinking with Dead Women Writers is amusing, creative and, in my opinion, worth the 2.99 it is now going for on Amazon.

In a nutshell, the book is a compiled set of mock interviews between the Ambrose, Turner and some of the most well-known literary women of the underworld. Chapters are short, a few pages each but distinctive. I had worried Ambrose and Turner would run out of steam but this wasn't the case. I was as tickled by Margaret Mead as I was Ayn Rand. Dorothy Parker and Erma Bombeck literally had me giggling through my lunch break. Giggling I tell you! Really my only quibble is the final line of Ambrose's sit down with Margaret Mitchell. Rather than channel her own work into her dialogue as do our other interviewees, the deceased opted to advertise her appreciation for artistic license and screen legend Clark Gable. It's funny really; I never would have thought the author would prefer the film adaptation to her own work. Go figure.

Engaging and revealing, but most of all, flat out funny. Will definitely be on the lookout for the next installment, Drinking with Dead Drunks, this fall.
