About Lauren Redniss

A visual journey through the life of Doris Eaton, the only living Ziegfeld girl, whose extraordinary 101 years have spanned the brightest moments in show biz and major historical landmarks of the 20th century, presented and narrated in the author's highly original collage style. The Ziegfeld Follies, Florenz Ziegfeld's stage spectacular, promised the best performers, the most lavish sets, and the most ravishing girls. Doris Eaton Travis at 14, was chosen as the youngest chorus girl in the Follies. Today, at the age of 101, Eaton is the oldest living Ziegfeld girl. Over the past century, she has performed for presidents and princesses, entertained Gershwin, Lindbergh, and Astaire, starred in silent and talking pictures, bantered with Babe Ruth, offended Henry Ford, outlived six siblings, written a newspaper column, hosted a television show, earned a Phi Beta Kappa degree in history, raised turkeys, and raced horses. The Century Girl is a visual tour of this extraordinary woman's journey through the ages. Lauren Redniss's narrative art employs an entirely original collage style, a seamless blend of her trademark line-drawings, hand-written narrative, and archival photos, in a sequence of full-page spreads, each one illustrating a rich chapter in Doris Eaton's life.
