The Girls of Murder City
- Theatre & Arts EBook
The true story of the murderesses who became media sensations and inspired the musical Chicago. Douglas Perry vividly captures Jazz Age Chicago and the sensationalised circus atmosphere that gave rise to the concept of the celebrity criminal. Fuelled by rich period detail and enlivened by a cast of characters who seemed destined for the stage, The Girls of Murder City is crackling social history that simultaneously presents the freewheeling spirit of the age and its sober repercussions.
