Louisa May Alcott has charmed successive generations of readers ever since the publication of her captivating and phenomenally successful Little Women in 1868. In this new collection of her stories, diaries, letters, and verse, an intimate portrait of the familiar writer emerges--and reveals her to be far fiercer and more complex than is generally suspected. Possessed of a rapier wit and fearless imagination, in her short pieces and private writings Alcott irreverently challenged the moral and social order of her day. Though her trademark generosity and good humor are fully on display, this unique volume also brings to life the daring, acerbic, down-to-earth, powerfully driven Louisa May Alcott who has only recently begun to emerge.
