By Stephania D. Byrd on June 20, 2012
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Ann Petry was a private person, some would say reclusive. This memoir opens the reader's mind to the inner workings of this great American novelist. One is privy to the author's journals and correspondence. Petry's life in New England throws light on her fierce determination in finding justice and confronting injustice, whether it occurs in her fiction or in her real life. This is a book worth reading!

Much more about Ann as an author than Elisabeth's first book, which focused on the family history. Uses not just person stories, but also published essays and extensive journal writings by Ann Petry. Really well done.
