By Emily Midorikawa,Emma Claire Sweeney,Margaret Atwood

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

Drawing on letters and diaries, a few of that have by no means been released earlier than, this booklet will exhibit Jane Austen’s bond with a relations servant, the novice playwright Anne Sharp; how Charlotte Brontë used to be encouraged by means of the bold feminist Mary Taylor; the transatlantic dating 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 pushed aside as sour foes.

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