It was wonderful talking to Anthony Brooks of Radio Boston (WBUR) the other day about the two new books, MARMEE & LOUISA and MY HEART IS BOUNDLESS. To listen, go to:
Abigail May Alcott, Louisa's mother
BUST magazine has given MARMEE & LOUISA a five-breast review!
This seems appropriate for a biography of a woman (Abigail May Alcott) who in September 1844 wrote to her sister-in-law Lucretia May, who had just given birth, "When God puts the babies in our laps, he places all the needfuls in its vicinity for its life and health - air, water, and Mother's titty is all it wants for a good while."
Eve LaPlante is the author, most recently, of the biography Marmee & Louisa and the editor of My Heart Is Boundless.
