Holy Skirts tells the fictional story of early 20th century poet and artist Baroness Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven (that’s her on the cover).  Elsa is an eccentric and independent woman, during and after her three marriages, landing in the Greenwich Village art scene as a trailblazing performance artist; reciting poetry on the street while wearing a bird cage hat with bird.  Marcel Duchamp and Man Ray both make appearances in this fascinating historical novel.
