Josephine Baker's Last Dance

A Novel
Written by Sherry Jones | Narrated by Adenrele Ojo
An internationally bestselling author “delivers a satisfying life of one endlessly fascinating person” (Kirkus Reviews). This illuminating novel follows the story of Josephine Baker as she rose from poverty and servitude to become a beloved showgirl — and fought against discrimination. Perfect “for people who want to know who was Beyoncé before Beyoncé, or Madonna before Madonna” (AudioFile).

PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION

Discover the fascinating and singular life story of Josephine Baker — actress, singer, dancer, Civil Rights activist, member of the French Resistance during WWII, and a woman dedicated to erasing prejudice and creating a more equitable world — in Josephine Baker’s Last Dance.

In this illuminating biographical novel, Sherry Jones spans Josephine’s early years in servitude and poverty in America to her rise to fame as a showgirl in her famous banana skirt to her activism against discrimination, and her many loves and losses. From 1920s Paris to 1960s Washington to her final, triumphant performance, one of the most extraordinary lives of the 20th century comes to stunning life on the page.

With intimate prose and comprehensive research, Sherry Jones brings this remarkable and compelling public figure into focus for the first time in a joyous celebration of a life lived in technicolor, a powerful woman who continues to inspire today.
