Powers, an author and granddaughter of a pulp fiction author, offers a biography of Daisy Bacon (1898-1986), editor of Love Story Magazine from 1928 to 1947, which published romance fiction and pulp fiction. Bacon managed seven other periodicals, and the book describes the time period she worked on them, as well as her life from her childhood to her death. Bacon was the defender of "the modern girl" who wanted to work and be married, was involved with a married man, and also suffered from depression, but projected an image of a strong, successful woman.
