About the author

Biography of Rennison, Louise

Author and comedian Louise Rennison grew up in Leeds, England and Wairakei, New Zealand. She took a Performing Arts course in Brighton and eventually created a one-woman autobiographical show, Stevie Wonder Felt My Face, which won awards at the Edinburgh Festival and was made into a television special. As a result of the show's success, she started writing for a London newspaper and was eventually offered a book deal. She is the author of the Confessions of Georgia Nicolson series about the exploits of a teenage girl and her best friends. Her other shows include Bob Marley's Gardener Sold My Friend and Never Eat Anything Bigger Than Your Head.

Biography of Alcott, Louisa May

Louisa May Alcott was born in Germantown, Pennsylvania, in 1832. Two years later, she moved with her family to Boston and in 1840 to Concord, which was to remain her family home for the rest of her life. Her father, Bronson Alcott, was a transcendentalist and friend of Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau. Alcott early realized that her father could not be counted on as sole support of his family, and so she sacrificed much of her own pleasure to earn money by sewing, teaching, and churning out potboilers.

Her reputation was established with Hospital Sketches (1863), which was an account of her work as a volunteer nurse in Washington, D.C. Alcott's first works were written for children, including her best-known Little Women (1868--69) and Little Men: Life at Plumfield with Jo's Boys (1871). Moods (1864), a "passionate conflict", was written for adults. Alcott's writing eventually became the family's main source of income. Throughout her life, Alcott continued to produce highly popular and idealistic literature for children.

An Old-Fashioned Girl (1870), Eight Cousins (1875), Rose in Bloom (1876), Under the Lilacs (1878), and Jack and Jill (1881) enjoyed wide popularity. At the same time, her adult fiction, such as the autobiographical novel Work: A Story of Experience (1873) and A Modern Mephistopheles (1877), a story based on the Faust legend, shows her deeper concern with such social issues as education, prison reform, and women's suffrage. She realistically depicts the problems of adolescents and working women, the difficulties of relationships between men and women, and the values of the single woman's life.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2007-11-15)

Alcott's standard gets bumped up to a Penguin Deluxe, complete with illustrated front and back covers, French flaps, and ragged paper. Very nice. Next time you're ordering new copies of LW, get this one.
