Summary

Drawing on letters and diaries, some of which have never been published before, this book will reveal Jane Austen's bond with a family servant; the amateur playwright Anne Sharp; how Charlotte Brontë was inspired by the daring feminist Mary Taylor; the transatlantic relationship between George Eliot and the author of Uncle Tom's Cabin, Harriet Beecher Stowe; and the underlying erotic charge that lit the friendship of Virginia Woolf and Katherine Mansfield - a pair too often dismissed as bitter foes.
With a foreword by Margaret Atwood.
