Josephine Baker’s Last Dance: #bookreview

Ever since I first heard Josephine Baker’s name, her story has captured my attention. So when Josephine Baker’s Last Dance by Sherry Jones became available on NetGalley, I jumped at the chance to read it. 

The book is historical fiction but there is some truth to the story. It’s told from Baker’s point of view based on interviews and other documents. 

Some people didn’t think she was anything special. Those people were wrong. Not only was Josephine Baker was a talented dancer and singer, but she was also a pilot and human rights activist. Did you know that Baker had a pet cheetah, Chiquita?

Even if nothing in the book was true, it was enjoyable to read. Of course, most of the details were true so it was fascinating to learn about Josephine Baker. It makes me wish I had been alive during the 1920s in Paris to see her perform. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys historical fiction. 

If you are interested in Josephine Baker’s Last Dance, you can find it at Amazon.

I could be the worst cook in America. My boyfriend tells his friends about my cooking disasters. I'm glad someone is amused. I like movies, music, comic books and corny jokes.
