Karen Abbott talks about Gypsy Rose Lee and "American Rose"

Karen Abbott 's second book "American Rose" has just been released in paperback. The book isn't so much a biography of Gypsy Rose Lee, as it uses her as a lens to look at the rise of burlesque, America during the Great Depression and much more. Gypsy is a far more complicated and interesting person than I thought – when I hear the name, I think of burlesque and the song "Everything's Coming Up Roses" from the musical Gypsy. It's an amazing life and the story that Abbott weaves around her is something else.
