Louisa May Alcott (1832-1888) is the author of the beloved Little Women, which was based on her own experiences growing up in New England with her parents and three sisters. More than a century after her death, Louisa May Alcott's stories continue to delight readers of all ages.
Alcott published her 1866 novel under the pseudonym A.M. Barnard. A departure from her usual fare, this offers a deceitful governess's attempts to ruin a family. Chekhov's 1895 volume follows a disastrous marriage that triumphs over time. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
"[Alcott's] casts include powerful, magnetic, and very naughty
women, whose carryings-on would have shocked Marmee."
"--The New Yorker"
"'Behind a Mask' is by far the better way to become acquainted
with Alcott's racier side."
"--The Washington Post Book World""Significantly deepens our understanding of one of the most tragically bright figures in American literature."
"--The Christian Science Monitor""[Alcott's] thrillers are spirited and skillful."
