“Fly Girls” by Keith O’Brien reminds us that there was more to the early history of flight that Amelia Earhart. He recounts the lives of women aviatrixes who defied convention by participating in races, exhibitions and long-distance flights. “Educated” by Tara Westover tells how the author went on from a survivalist family to earn a PhD at Cambridge. “In Pieces” recounts actress Sally Field’s journey from Gidget to Norma Rae while “Reckless Daughter” explores the life and art of Joni Mitchell, one of pop music’s finest chirper-cleffers. If these catch your interest, you might also look at recent lies of Princess Margaret, Bunny Mellon, and Stevie Nicks.
