If I had a shelf talker, this is what I'd say about "Unmentionables"

 "I'm a sucker for beautifully written historical novels – especially a book such as Unmentionables, that can effortlessly toss together the arcane details of Tent Chautauqua circuit planning, early twentieth-century newspaper typesetting, World War One Red Cross volunteers, the economics of Chicago streetcar conductors, radical societies, dress reform, suffrage, and small town race relations. Did I forget to mention the main characters - Marian & Deuce - around whom this novel revolves? Wonderful. This quickly became one of my favorite novels - I'm looking forward to it coming out in January."
