Florence Gordon, by Brian Morton. I absolutely loved this book about an irascible feminist icon now in her 70s and trying to figure out how to interact with her family, while they try to figure out how to interact with her and with each other. Read April 2015. Oh, and do read the linked Flavorwire post on the book as well. "Why Are Honest Feminist Novels Like Brian Morton’s ‘Florence Gordon’ So Rare?"
"A vivid real-life re-creation of the race (between Nellie Bly and Elizabeth Bisland) and its aftermath, from its frenzied start to the nail-biting dash at its finish, Eighty Days is history with the heart of a great adventure novel." - Goodreads.com
