Madcaps, Screwballs, and Con Women: The Female Trickster in American Culture
University of Pennsylvania Press, 1998 - 258 pages

While there are many studies of tricksters, few have focused on the chicanery of women, and none have dealt with the ways in which the female trickster is constructed in America.
