This biography is essential reading for anyone involved in serious study of Charlotte Perkins Gilman. It offers important correctives to Gilman's not-entirely-reliable account of her own life in the autobiography, _The Living of Charlotte Perkins Gilman_. It provides new and reinterpreted information about Gilman's early years, but, most important, while there have been other biographies prior to this one, Davis's is the first to cover the years after 1900. Doing so was surely a challenge, since, as Davis argues, Gilman resisted discussing the personal and individual, preferring to subordinate self to the social and collective. Highly recommended.
