Format: Paperback
This is a brilliant intervention in the study of American literature written by one of the smartest, women academics out there. Wonderful in its contextualization of 19th-century American women writers, this book is well-organized, comprehensive and lively. Please don't be daunted by fact-checker wannabes. This is great stuff, for both students and those who would like a women writers compendium on hand.

Format: Hardcover
I began reading this book with great anticipation, looking forward to a pleasant evening learning more about a sadly-neglected subject; women's writing in 19th century America.
About two thirds down the first page of the historical timeline, one eyebrow went up. Three seconds later the other eyebrow joined the first eyebrow. By page 20 I was ready to ask for my money back.
This book is riddled with so many errors of fact, grammar and spelling (a character in one of Mrs. E.D. E. N. Southworth's novels is described as "fighting duals")that I can't believe it made it past the fact-checker and the copy-editor. I have to ask myself the question: If the editors couldn't be bothered to catch these minor, silly mistakes, how can I have any confidence that the rest of the information they are imparting is accurate?
Messrs Bauer and Gould should be ashamed of themselves for allowing such a slipshod piece of work to make it into print.
