Book Review: Call Me Zelda by Erika Robuck

Call Me ZeldaCall Me Zelda by Erika Robuck
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Erika Robuck is a gifted author, weaving historical figures into a compelling story. This book portrayed the characters of Zelda Fitgerald and Anna, a nurse who helps and befriends Zelda. The author is able to show Zelda with such compassion and depth, sharing her struggles with mental illness and a tumultuous relationship with her famous alcoholic husband, yet she avoids making Zelda seem like simply a tragic figure, but rather a woman with depth and complexity. The relationship between Anna and Zelda is a rare and special friendship. I would highly recommend this book to anyone, especially those of us who love historical fiction.
