  • Like watching an old movie

    Reading The Show Girl is kind of like watching an old movie about those days when young women went to New York City or Hollywood, lured by the dream of a glamourous life as a Ziegfeld Follies girl or a movie star. Olive McCormick is one of those young women. In 1927 she is finally able to move from dreary Minneapolis to New York City and show the world she has what it takes. She is a very talented singer and dancer, but Ziegfield’s “come and see me if you’re ever in New York City” wasn’t exactly the promise to guide her to stardom that Olive thought it was. While it’s true that Olive has an independent nature and passion for success and is a modern young woman who perseveres through huge sacrifices, in the story those traits often translate into selfishness, entitlement and greed. The glimpse into the glitzy world of the Ziegfeld Follies is fun, but Olive unfortunately never captured my heart or sympathy. Thanks to St. Martin’s Press for providing an advance copy of The Show Girl in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.

    Thanks for your feedback!
