From Our Editors

There was an unparalleled optimism in the United States at the beginning of the 20th century. Musical comedy star Anna Held was the very embodiment of this optimism. Eve Golden examines the life and times of this glamorous star in Anna Held and the Birth of Ziegfeld’s Broadway. But behind the scenes, Held’s life had its share of problems. Golden recounts how she hid her Jewish background and her resentful daughter, as well as how she put up with her producer-husband Florenz Ziegfeld’s blatant affairs. Golden also highlights Held’s courage in entertaining the troops during the First World War in this compelling biography of one of first bona fide superstars.
