Meg, Jo, Beth, Amy: The Story of Little Women and Why It Still Matters
Aug 25, 2018
A fascinating history of Louisa May Alcott and "Little Women," just in time for the book's 150th anniversary. While I've read more than my share of Alcott biographies, I don't think I've ever read critical analysis of "Little Women." It was a fun read for me, the author dissected the book, offered historical references, character sketches, and showed the influence it had on various authors, books, movies and TV shows (Gilmore Girls, which is one of my all-time favorites). I intend to read Rioux's book on Constance Fenimore Woolson, another woman writer of the 19th century next.
