Anything Goes: The Jazz Age Adventures of Neysa McMein and Her Extravagant Circle of Friends is the title of the book I entered in the Wine, Women & Song Round Robin. I knew I wanted to do something from the 1920’s for this RR, and the book title just caught my eye. Although Neysa McMein was a real person, I asked the players to make up events from her life, to send her on adventures and weave tall tales based on the minimal information I gave them.
When this book arrived home, it was less than half completed—partly due to two artists dropping out of the RR, and partly because it was just a big book. At the end of 2002, I decided to host a Second Chance RR for folks who had books in a similar state. Five new artists working in the book brought it closer to completion.
