Meet the Author


Louisa May Alcott (1832-1888) was an American writer best known for her classic novel Little Women (1868-69), drawn from her own childhood. Personally educated by writers such as Emerson, Hawthorne, and Thoreau, she first gained literary success with Hospital Sketches (1863), based on her experiences as a nurse during the Civil War.  Her writing often deals with women’s issues in an honest, insightful manner.

This collection is, overall, rather decent. Fans of Louisa May Alcott will not be easily disappointed, but new readers might want to consider readimg her other works first.
