Editorial Reviews

Review

"Helen Hunt Jackson has long been stored in America's literary attic. . . . Kate Phillips seeks to unpack Jackson, take her downstairs to the library living room and let her bask in bright sunshine."--Salt Lake City Tribune -- Review

"The best parts ... come when Phillips approached her subject as a fellow novelist ... [shaping] the book thematically and chronologically..." -- San Francisco Chronicle, April 19, 2003

"a smart biography of a tireless literary worker and intellectual" -- New York Times Book Review, September 21, 2003

Phillips has produced what demands to be regarded as the definitive biography of Jackson. -- Los Angeles Times Book Review, March 30, 2003

From the Inside Flap

"This beautifully crafted book is a landmark in literary and cultural studies. Kate Phillips brings together in this definitive life of Helen Hunt Jackson a variety of challenging issues-feminism, literary history, psychology, social history, biography, intellectual history, anthropology-and the result is a brilliant contribution to the entire field of American studies. Helen Hunt Jackson: A Literary Life will have a broad and lasting impact on our understanding of American culture."—Sacvan Bercovitch, Powell M. Cabot Research Professor of American Literature, Harvard University

The book was in great shape. I am reading Ramona now and haven't gotten to the biography yet.
