Books inhabit our lives. In the case of Rebecca Mead and George Eliot's Middlemarch, that indwelling began when Mead was just seventeen. Since then, this British born author has researched, reread, rediscovered and meditated on this 1871 novel and its pseudonymous author. Thus, My Life in Middlemarch is a fascinating hybrid; a literary history, critical probe, biography, and memoir. As such, it manages to reinvigorate a classic that all too many of us remember only as an old classroom assignment. A gentle exploration.
