    One thought on “Life of Lorena Hickok E. R.'s Friend”

    1. Faber's biography is detailed and documented, but is weakened by the biographer's obvious homophobic stance: she "discovered" the ER/Hickok correspondence at the FDR Library and was "appalled." She also slights Hickok's substantial career achievements before and after she becomes ER's closest friend, and focuses too heavily (IMO) on her unhappiness.

    3. A very interesting bio on one of Eleanor Roosevelt's closest friends and former newspaper reporter, and what her friendship with the First Lady cost her career. A good read.

    4. Good historical background of a working female in journalism as well as a friend of Eleanor Roosevelt. Question of a romantic relationship between the two women is brought forth in this biography.
