Speak Easy

Speak Easy - Catherynne M. Valente Zelda Fair lives in hotel Artemisia, and it’s the hotel of your 1920’s dreams. There are parties on every floor and Zelda is the toast of all of them. Frankie, a poor bellhop, is besotted with her. And Al, the underground ruler of it all, steals her away. Catherynne Valente took Zelda Sayre, F. Scot Fitzgerald, the roaring 20s, Prohibition, and the fairy tale of The 12 Dancing Princess then chewed them up with her lovely language and spit out this novella.
