The Chaperone by Laura Moriarty

Louise Brooks, silent film star, appears on the cover of, and within, an awful lot of books. Just released this June is Laura Moriarty's The Chaperone. This Huffington Post article features just some of the fiction, poetry and nonfiction with Brooks on the cover.

The Chaperone centers on the prim married woman from Kansas who accompanied 15 year-old silent film femme fatale Louise Brooks on her first trip to New York City in 1922, and spans the next six decades of the older woman's life.
