Loos2Today, almost 90 years after its original 1925 publication,  Liveright Publishing releases a new edition of  “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” by Anita Loos, with a new introduction by Jenny McPhee. I dusted off my copy of the jazz age classic about the shrewd, gold-digging flapper from Little Rock along with its sequel “But Gentlemen Marry Brunettes.”

It has been years since I laughed at Lorelei’s vapid musings and I think I might revisit on the next quiet afternoon that becomes available.
