My Sister Phyllis Pearsall Gross 


And the Meaning of Truth

 
Creating the Tweetable Version 

of this Story...

 

In a few words the real story of the A-Z is not what my sister and Sarah Hartley would have it:

 
Brave Feminist Hero Outwits Oppressive Male Father 
And Becomes Sole Creator of Glorious A-Z Atlas.

 
Here's a story line every bit as dramatic:

Brave Father Creates A-Z Atlas But Is Swindled as a Jew by British, Makes Come-Back, But Is Finally Betrayed by his Daughter.

 
Both versions are equally melodramatic, but there is probably a good deal more truth to the second one. At 124 characters it's also tweetable.
