About the Author

Louisa May Alcott was an American novelist best known as author of the novel Little Women and its sequels Little Men and Jo's Boys. Raised by her transcendentalist parents, Abigail May and Amos Bronson Alcott in New England, she grew up among many of the well-known intellectuals of the day such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Henry David Thoreau. Nevertheless, her family suffered severe financial difficulties and Alcott worked to help support the family from an early age. She began to receive critical success for her writing in the 1860s. Early in her career, she sometimes used the pen name A. M. Barnard and under it wrote novels for young adults. Published in 1868, Little Women is set in the Alcott family home, Orchard House, in Concord, Massachusetts and is loosely based on Alcott's childhood experiences with her three sisters. The novel was very well received and is still a popular children's novel today, filmed several times. Alcott was an abolitionist and a feminist and remained unmarried throughout her life. She died in Boston on March 6, 1888. Henry James called her "The novelist of children... the Thackeray, the Trollope, of the nursery and the schoolroom.” --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

HASH(0xa3df4aa4) out of 5 stars Interesting book and interesting approach to typesetting Sept. 27 2007
By Mr. C. Stephen - Published on
Format: Paperback
Jean Muir, a lovely and modest governess, wrecks havoc in the lives of her employers. All the men covet her while the women are livid with jealousy. It has a surprise ending. It is a good read.
The typesetting of the book made it a joy to read. The publisher's note at the back of the book is also interesting. The book has been optimized for ease of reading and so was called EasyRead. The publishers, ReadHowYouWant apparently do all sorts of other formats, including some very large formats.
