Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Carolyn Gold Heilbrun (January 13, 1926 in East Orange, New Jersey - October 9, 2003 in New York City) was an American academic and prolific feminist author of both important academic studies and popular mystery novels under the pen name of Amanda Cross. Heilbrun attended graduate school in English literature at Columbia University, receiving her M.A. in 1951 and Ph.D in 1959. Among her most important mentors were Columbia professors Jacques Barzun and Lionel Trilling, while Clifton Fadiman was an important inspiration: she wrote about these three in her final non-fiction work, When Men Were the Only Models We Had: My Teachers Barzun, Fadiman, Trilling (2002). Heilbrun taught English at Columbia for more than three decades (1960-1993). She was the first woman to receive tenure in Columbia's English department (not unlike Trilling, who had become the first tenured Jew in that department less than two decades earlier). Her academic specialty was British modern literature, with a particular interest in the Bloomsbury Group. Her academic books include the feminist study Writing a Woman's Life (1988).show more
