@Tess  I had forgotten about Berg's Linbergh bio which interested me when it first came out.  I will look for "Paris 1919" - thanks!  I'm reading the Wilon bio a few chapters each week in between other books so will take me a while to finish. 

A very readable book about the Transcendalists is "American Bloomsbury:  Louisa May Alcott, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Margaret Fuller, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Henry David Thoreau:  Their Lives, Their Loves, Their Works" by Susan Cheever. Whew!  Long title - very good book.
