Giveaway Louisa May Alcott THE WOMAN BEHIND LITTLE WOMEN by Harriet Reisen

Due to hit bookstores everywhere October 26th 2010, this giveaway will end the day before release so that way if you did not get a copy you will know on release day.

EmailPrint The Woman Behind Little Women by Harriet Reisen

"In a fresh, modern take on the remarkable Louisa May Alcott, Harriet Reisen’s vivid biography explores the author’s life in the context of her works, many of which are to some extent autobiographical. Although Alcott secretly wrote pulp fiction, harbored radical abolitionist views, and served as a Civil War nurse, her novels went on to sell more copies than those of Herman Melville and Henry James. Stories and details culled from Alcott’s journals, together with revealing letters to family, friends, and publishers, plus recollections of her famous contemporaries provide the basis for this lively account of the author’s classic rags-to-riches tale. In Louisa May Alcott, the extraordinary woman behind the beloved American classic Little Women is revealed as never before".

 Open to US  and it is a beautiful paperback copy!

  10. This should be such an interesting and wonderful book. I saw part of the American Masters program on her. It gave a very different picture of her than I had. Authors are often so very different than what we think.

    Thank you so much for this giveaway.
