"Lovely and heartbreaking..."
"Megan Mayhew Bergman breathes life into lives that men and history have cast aside. It is rare that an author is as fearless as her characters. Bergman is, and Almost Famous Women is a stunning feat of great daring."
-Lily King, author of Euphoria
"Megan Mayhew Bergman is a tremendous writer -- compassionate and intelligent, generous and funny -- and ALMOST FAMOUS WOMEN is a collection filled with empathy, insight and extraordinary psychological precision. Mayhew Bergman has made the women who inhabit this beautiful book come fully to life -- I won't ever forget them." - Molly Antopol, The UnAmericans
"Almost Famous Women is sharp, compassionate, and strong, just like the women depicted in its pages."
- Emma Straub, author of The Vacationers
"Megan Mayhew Bergman writes with an astonishing force of empathy, a compassion as bright and illuminating as a klieg light. The reader of Almost Famous Women can't help but be seduced by these eccentric, subversive, passionate women who lived their lives with their entire souls and who were furiously unapologetic for doing so."
-Lauren Groff, author of Arcadia
"...original and surprising..." starred review from Kirkus
