“Talking Dolls”


Here’s a story that was rejected 45 times before it was finally published by the kind and gracious folks at Michigan Quarterly Review. This is a story about women and about history and about Edison’s Talking Dolls. Special thanks to the real scientist behind recovering these old recordings, Carl Haber, who graciously answered all my questions.
