Product description


"This delightful read had me leaping to grab Little Women and its two sequels off the bookshelf immediately."

--Samira Ahmed, Mail on Sunday Event Magazine

"Highly entertaining and eminently sane…[Rioux] paints a compelling portrait of Alcott, giving us fascinating insights into the creation of Little Women."

--Washington Post

"Rioux gives an enthralling account of how Little Women broke new ground with realistic girls who spoke in 'vulgar' slang, lost their tempers, had career plans and, if they did get married, found it pretty hard work... This delightful read had me leaping to grab Little Women and its two sequels off the bookshelf immediately."

--The Mail on Sunday

"...[a] satisfying, balanced but punchy tribute to Alcott's great work..."

--The Spectator

"Astute examination of the long life of Little Women."

--The Atlantic

"...highly companionable and illuminating..." --Vanity Fair
