Reviews

"Cather could not have hoped for a more passionately sensible and insightful interpreter." --The Observer

"The biographer's enthusiasm for her subject illuminates every page." --Hilary Mantel

"A valuable critical study. . . . So absorbing that it provokes a rereading of [all of Cather's] work." --The New York Times Book Review

"Sympathetic and illuminating. . . . Lee's reading of Cather rediscovers her as a disconcerting, complex writer of conflicting energies and sexual doubleness." --New Statesman
