Selected Works

Fiction/creative nonfiction
"Masterfully drawing on intimate family letters, Haskell crosses the boundaries of fact and fiction to bring to life the distinctive voices of an era and illuminate one exceptional woman's struggle for independence and fulfillment."
–Lauren Belfer, New York Times bestselling author of City of Light, A Fierce Radiance, and And After the Fire
“This could be the best book on Kansas City history published in decades. The writing is excellent, literate, and informed.”
—William S. Worley, author of J. C. Nichols and the Shaping of Kansas City
"A book that will delight and instruct everyone who reads it, even those who have lived through important parts of the story; better still, it will leave the reader thinking about what it all means."
--Richard Dyer in the Boston Globe
"A beautifully collected and annotated anthology of occasional writings about music. . . . I recommend it to anybody who likes music and wants to like it yet again."
--Boston Book Review
