Praise for A Secret Sisterhood

"In digging up the forgotten friendships chronicled in A Secret Sisterhood, Emily Midorikawa and Emma Claire Sweeney have done much service to literary history . . . These four women, however iconic they have now become, were not two-dimensional icons, nor were they plaster angels: they were real people, with all the neediness, anxiety, ardor, and complexity that come with the territory." --Margaret Atwood, from the foreword

"A Secret Sisterhood offers a clever new perspective on established literary figures. While we may inherit family and circumstances, we get to choose our friends; and those these famous women writers have chosen reveal much that is fresh and fascinating about their lives and their work." --Tracy Chevalier, author of Girl with a Pearl Earring

"A thought-provoking meditation on literary friendship as well as engagingly intimate glimpses of four of the world's finest writers in a pursuit that, for women of their times, skirted the edges of decency." --San Francisco Chronicle
