Writer, poet, social activist, explorer, aviatrix, and 92-year-old pole vaulter: Emily Chesley played many roles in her long and remarkable life. This week I will be posting abridged excerpts from her biography, Get Bent: Emily Chesley’s Life of Speculation, which recounts the humble beginnings and formative experiences of the Speculative Songstress Of The Southwest.
You can read the first half of her biography in The Meanderings of the Emily Chesley Reading Circle, available at Alibris here. Until now the remarkable life of Emily Chesley has been overlooked by historians and literary researchers. Discover the humorous remedy to this literary travesty.
