Marmee & Louisa : The Untold Story of Louisa May Alcott and Her Mother
by Eve Laplante




Overview -
The acclaimed and "meticulously researched" (People) biography that actor Laura Dern--who plays Marmee in the Little Women film adaptation--calls "a beautiful book of letters between Louisa and her mother...a massive influence. You feel it as like a cord of the film."

Marmee & Louisa, hailed by NPR as one of the best books of 2012, paints an exquisitely moving and utterly convincing portrait of Louisa May Alcott and her mother, the real "Marmee." Award-winning biographer Eve LaPlante mines the Alcotts' intimate diaries and other private papers, some recently discovered in a family attic and others thought to have been destroyed, to revive this remarkable daughter and mother. Abigail May Alcott--long dismissed as a quiet, self-effacing background figure--comes to life as a gifted writer and thinker. A politically active feminist firebrand, she fought for universal civil rights, an end to slavery, and women's suffrage. This gorgeously written story of two extraordinary women is guaranteed to transform our view and deepen our understanding of one of America's most beloved authors.
