Editorial Reviews

From the Author

I wrote the first draft decades ago, and expanded it thanks to my writing group. It is a new genre for me, and expresses my love of silly humor.  I enjoy the wilds of Cornwall, and have used my experiences there to fill in local color. The story also fits as a satire to a certain PBS series that centers upon an estate.

About the Author

Clarice Stasz has published over forty years, from social commentary to biographies. A retired professor of history, Clarice is a leading scholar of Jack London, with appearances in documentaries for HBO and PBS. She was noted by Book-of-the-Month Club for The Vanderbilt Women, and has received several awards for her Jack London studies. Starting her writing career as an editor, Clarice is committed to crisp and straightforward narratives to introduce average readers to history. A lifelong reader of mysteries, Slanderley is her first venture into the genre. Growing up in Southern New Jersey, Clarice attended Douglass College when it was still all-women. She received an M.A. from the University of Wisconsin, and completed her Ph.d. at Rutgers-the State University. Following three years as an educational researcher at Johns Hopkins University, she joined the faculty at Sonoma State University, where she spent her academic career. There she taught courses in history, sociology, and women's studies. She also spent a year in post-doctorate study at Brown University on African-American history. Living close to Jack London State Historic Park, she discovered the author and his times close to her fascination with the Gilded Age and Progressive Era. This led her to the use of biography as a means to convey American history. Her ongoing research was supported in part by the Rockefeller Archives and the National Endowment for the Humanities. Through these writings run the themes of gender, race, and power relations as subtexts. She wrote the first textbooks incorporating discussion of the male as well as female social roles, this at a time when concentration on women alone prevailed. Her next book is based upon her family history of immigrants from Bohemia and Hungary to Cleveland after 1865. It explores the persistence of ethnicity generations after migration and apparent assimilation. Stasz is a lifelong musician, active as a singer, percussionist, flautist, and song writer. For relaxation she hikes and is a bird watcher. Her volunteer work emphasizes arts groups and services to women in need.
