Mallory is an award winning and best-selling author and screenwriter. Whether it's for the screen or the page, Mallory seeks creative projects filled with horror and monsters. She lives in Los Angeles. [from author website]



This book is amazing. I am a lifelong fan of The Creature From the Black Lagoon and reading the story of Milicent Patrick was a journey well worth taking. Her design of the creature was perfection. This book was full of joy for me. Watching horror movies as a kid are some of my only fond memories. Watching Creature From the Black Lagoon was what made me a lifelong movie fan.

I actually learned a lot from this book and not just about women and booze - I learned a lot about the history of alcohol and was super intrigued throughout the whole book. Mallory O'Meara does an excellent job of giving readers the history of women and booze while also highlighting some extremely influential women along the way. There were so many interesting tid bits about how alcohol was made - where customs and laws came from - and of course - how women got the short end of the stick time and time again. Women do not get nearly enough credit for their impact and are even now still overshadowed by their male counterpoints. I think this book is important for anyone who likes learning about history and drinking. A fun and extremely enlightening read!… (lisätietoja)

This was an amazing listen, and I loved everything about it. Milicent Patrick had a fascinating life, but I most loved how Mallory O’Meara shared her own story and her journey to writing this book; the way she researched was truly inspiring for me as a layperson who just wants to keep finding out more. There’s so much here about women through the years and how they have to continually deal with bad men, and I appreciated the calling out of them and oof Hollywood seems like it sucks. I loved having the ebook also nearby to check out the photos, and I loved all the footnotes as only a few made it into the audiobook.… (lisätietoja)

A worthy tale, certainly, both the historical section and O'Meara's personal journey, but 100% of my issues with it have to do with O'Meara's inexperience as a journalist; she projects wildly and draws larger generalizations where they may not be warranted.

I'm not, to be clear, talking about generalizations about sexism and sexual harassment in Hollywood. I'm certain that part is true. But much of the analysis of Patrick's motivations seem to be drawn from O'Meara's personal experience rather than any evidence, barring documents and letters that she didn't directly mention in the text. Shorter version, this needed a lot of footnotes to make the assertions that it does.

That said, worth reading if you have an interest in Hollywood of years gone by, or want to read about the story of Millicent Patrick, who was unjustly denied credit for her achievements for many years.
