Hilda Dunn

Goodreads Author


Born
in Syracuse, NY, The United States
Member Since
November 2008


HIlda Dunn was born in Syracuse to parents who had immigrated from Great Britain after the first world war. She studied at Edinburgh University for two years after graduating from Syracuse University in 1947, also traveling on the continent at that postwar moment, experiences reflected in her only novel. She worked from many years as a copywriter for Jordan Marsh and Filene's department stores in Boston. In 1961, she married Michael J. Glaubman, a professor of physics at Northeastern University. Together they raised four children in the Boston area, and Hilda also earned a Masters degree in English literature in 1974. She passed away while on vacation in England in 1998.

Jane Jane said: " Wow, I should finish this. It's really good. But I was reading 2 different editions side by side - worked great for overcoming my reservations about each translation, but made it easy to wander off and not finish. "

Selections worked really well in a class I taught for first-year university students. The immediacy and vividness of the writing, and the combination of relevance and recent history they didn't know, worked great.

Much more reasonable and less nasty than those familiar with Henwood's bracing journalistic style (or those looking at the cover art, actually painted by a big Hillary fan) might expect, this is a very thorough, brief, but copiously documented review ...more
