Overview

The Observer by Natalie Wexler

Baltimore, 1807: Eliza Anderson, 26 years old, defies prevailing ideas about a woman's proper place to become editor of the Observer, a magazine that blends serious commentary and satire. But while Eliza mocks her neighbors, someone in her household is observing her-and feeding scandalous information to her enemies.

Based on real events and incorporating excerpts from actual publications, The Observer sheds light on an era when the young nation was both insecure and feisty. At the same time, it spins a universal tale of forbidden ambition, frustrated love, and ultimately, empathy across boundaries of class and culture.
