The Spinster Hall of Fame: Yes, Cut-out dolls of five pioneering women writers
"In honor or Kate Bolick’s new books Spinster, Crown has created what everyone needs on a Friday afternoon: spinster cut out dolls. ... 'My candle burns at both ends, it will not last the night…' America’s first rock-star poetess, Edna St. Vincent Millay toured the country after winning the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry in 1923, bringing her revolutionary lyrics and bohemian lifestyle to the masses. Millay’s work, including the poem 'First Fig,' was definitive and revolutionary for her generation, yet her lyrical voice is timeless."
