"Here is a rich new biographical perspective on the brilliant storyteller whose sophisticated romantic fiction . . . made her an international success and perpetual candidate for the Nobel Prize for Literature. . . .

They also reveal her as a highly intelligent and sensitive analyst of a strange new world."--Bruce Allen, Christian Science Monitor
