We Are Michael Fieldby Emma Donoghue
One of the most bizarre partnerships of all time, Michael Field was two women, Katherine Bradley and Edith Cooper, aunt and niece, poets and playwrights and lovers, who wrote under their adopted pseudonym to considerable success toward the end of the 19th century. When their identity was inadvertently revealed in a review, a shocked Victorian society shunned them and they withdrew into seclusion. Drawing from their extensive diaries, Emma Donoghue chronicles a remarkable love affair between two extraordinary women who wrote dramas of war, madness, and erotic obsession, as well as lyrics declaring their love for each other.
