ELLEN STEINBERG'S "Irma, painstakingly crafted out of Irma Rosenthal Frankenstein's voluminous writings, gives us an inspiring and richly rewarding account of the life and times of an active, socially engaged woman who devoted herself to her family and her community over the course of a long and full life. Irma (1871-1966) was born in Chicago--just before the Chicago Fire--of German Jewish parents who had come to the U.S. shortly after the Civil War.

From a plethora of rich source materials--including over half a million words of Irma's writings alone--Steinberg has created a seamless, fascinating narrative about a Chicago woman who, although "nobody fa
