But Gentlemen Marry Brunettes Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of But Gentlemen Marry Brunettes

In this sequel to Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Lorelei Lee tells the story of her friend Dorothy in classic Lorelei style. Dorothy grew up in a carnival company, went through the hands of a prominent local reformer, and then moved to NYC, where she became a Ziegfield Follies girl and then a professional companion to wealthy men. Lorelei also updates the reader on her own life. The book resonates with the same kind of humor and insight as Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, and both books are well worth reading.
