By Emily Midorikawa,Emma Claire Sweeney,Margaret Atwood

A mystery Sisterhood uncovers the hidden literary friendships of the world’s most useful lady authors.

Drawing on letters and diaries, a few of that have by no means been released earlier than, this ebook will demonstrate Jane Austen’s bond with a relatives servant, the novice playwright Anne Sharp; how Charlotte Brontë used to be encouraged via the bold feminist Mary Taylor; the transatlantic courting among George Eliot and the author
of Uncle Tom’s Cabin, Harriet Beecher Stowe; and the underlying erotic cost that lit the friendship of Virginia Woolf and Katherine Mansfield – a couple too frequently brushed off as sour foes.

of their first publication jointly, Midorikawa and Sweeney resurrect those literary collaborations, that have been occasionally illicit, scandalous and risky; occasionally supportive, radical or inspiring; yet constantly, beforehand, tantalisingly consigned to the shadows.
