IrrepressibleWe’re adding this to our reading list, and not only because it’s a terrific way to observe gay pride month: Emily Bingham’s biography “Irrepressible: The Jazz Age Life of Henrietta Bingham,” which resurrects the life and legend of her ancestor, a woman who was too hot to handle not only in her own times, but for a half-century after, The New York Times said in a “Books of Style” feature shortly before the book was published last year.

“In Bingham’s telling,” the Times says, “Henrietta, who was born in 1901 and died in 1968, ‘caught the wave’ of a rare moment of tolerance for homosexuality and ‘unconventional desires’ in the 1920s.”
