Review quote

"A superb collection of essays eloquently presenting the feminist case for a new kind of biography, more personal and more sensitive to women's roles, and also more savvy about the connections between public and private experience in the lives of women and men than has been the norm in traditional biography." -- Magill Book Reviews "This wonderful collection demonstrates the significance of women's biography as a central part of feminist scholarship. The feminist biographer inserts a second life into a biography, her own, giving us yet another layer of depth and insight." - Ann J. Lane, author of To "Herland" and Beyond: The Life and Work of Charlotte Perkins Gilman
