A Cinderella Story with an Immigrant Twist

The Cinderella story, which has survived the critiques of Marxism and feminism, not to mention adaptations by Disney, found its most adult, most politicized telling via the pen of Louise Evelyn Chollet Furniss, who was born in New Bedford, Massachusetts, in 1839, and died, at the Hotel Carlton, in Manhattan, on Christmas Day, 1904. She produced social-crusader journalism under her own name for the likes of Harper’s Monthly Magazine and Appletons’ Journal, and a solitary extraordinary novel under the solitary extraordinary pseudonym Czeika: “An Operetta in Profile” (1887).
