LADY gets the trifecta of reviews: USA TODAY, Wall Street Journal, and New York Times!

And aren't I the most grateful author in town?  I am, I am.  Here they are in one place.....

USA TODAY, Deirdre Donahue

"Scrumptious is the only word to describe Ann Kirschner's Lady at the O.K. Corral: The True Story of Josephine Marcus Earp. This quick-paced biography has it all going on: sex, beauty, blood, guns, bad men and wild girls. Not to mention Hollywood and history."

WALL STREET JOURNAL by Mark Yost

"Splendid.... A series of events between the two groups [that] ended in a classic episode from American legend—a showdown that settled matters in minutes and created heroes and villains for years to come."

NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW by Sara Wheeler

"The fabled shootout at the O.K. Corral rooted Wyatt Earp deep in the American psyche, or at least in its Western mythology. But Ann Kirschner has cleverly identified a parallel story buried under the debris of history: that of Josephine Marcus, for nearly 50 years Earp’s common-law wife and a valiant frontierswoman in her own right."
