Based on diaries, letters, and other contemporary accounts, these five miniature biographies allow us unparalleled intimacy with women of genius in their hours of domestic ease and inner vulnerability. Shaggy Muses also enchants us with a pack of new friends: Flush, Keeper, Carlo, Foxy, Linky, Grizzle, Pinka, and all the other devoted canines who loved and served these great writers.
well researched examination of the bond between noted writers and their companion animals. The author gives us a fresh perspective on the lives of a select group of literary women authors, spanning the late 1800s to the yearly 20th century. Anyone who loves literature and dogs will be deeply moved by these bio-profiles.
