by Louisa May Alcott
Louisa May Alcott is best known as the author of Little Women. But she was also a noted essayist who wrote on a wide range of subjects, including her father’s failed utopian commune, life as a Civil War nurse and her experience as a young woman sent to work in service to alleviate her family’s poverty. A Strange Life shows Alcott to be one of the sharpest wits in American literature.
by Virginia Woolf Joanna Kavenna
The essays chosen here were written between 1919 when Virginia Woolf was 37 and 1940 when she was 58. During this time, Woolf changed, many times over, her opinions changed, her circumstances too; and the essays here range from ‘How Should One Read a Book?’ to ‘Professions for Women’ and ‘The Humane Art’.
by Emily Rapp Black
Frida Kahlo and My Left Leg by New York Times bestselling author Emily Rapp Black is an amputee’s personal examination of how the experiences, art, and disabilities of Frida Kahlo shaped her life. In Kahlo’s art, Rapp Black recognised her own life, from the numerous operations to the compulsion to create to silence pain. Here she tells her story of losing her infant son to Tay-Sachs, giving birth to a daughter, and learning to accept her body.
