Richard Lindberg & Bob Deckert

Chicago by Gaslight: A History of Chicago's Netherworld: 1880-1920 by Richard Lindberg & Bob DeckertThis book revises the picture of the glittering Chicago of impressive mansions and museums; it exposes the city's corrupt underbelly and the realities of life in an age which is often assumed to have been simpler and more moral than ours.

Women of Privilege: 100 Years of Love and Loss in a Family of the Hudson River Valley

Gillotti Susan

Women of Privilege: 100 Years of Love and Loss in a Family of the Hudson River Valley by Gillotti SusanWomen of Privilege traces the decline of a once-privileged Hudson River Valley family where the neighbors were Vanderbilts, Delanos, and Roosevelts. Susan Gillotti provides us an insight into her ancestors' heretofore secret lives, culled from private diaries, letters, and journals of the three generations of women who inhabited Grasmere--one of the great houses of the Hudson River Valley. On the surface, their lives seem ideal, but beneath that facade, there was mental illness, alcoholism, yearning for divorce, and questions of sexual identity.
