"Coming into Bessie, I foolishly assumed I knew everything I needed to know about Bess Myerson. Boy, was I wrong. Linda Kass’s deeply researched novel is a poignant origin story, a fascinating window into mid-century American life, and a compelling case for Myerson as an authentic American heroine."

—Louis Bayard, Washington Post bestselling author of Jackie & Me and The Pale Blue Eye
