Contributor(s): Author: Martine Reid Translator: Gretchen Van Slyke The romantic and rebellious novelist George Sand, born in 1804 as Amantine Lucile Aurore Dupin, remains one of France's most infamous and beloved literary figures. Thanks to a peerless translation by Gretchen van Slyke, Martine Reid's acclaimed biography of Sand is now available in English. Drawing on recent French and English biographies of Sand as well as her novels, plays, autobiographical texts, and correspondence, Reid creates the most complete portrait possible of a writer who was both celebrated and vilified. Reid contextualizes Sand within the literature of the nineteenth century, unfolds the meaning and importance of her chosen pen name, and pays careful attention to Sand's political, artistic, and scientific expressions and interests. The result is a candid, even-handed, and illuminating representation of a remarkable woman in remarkable times. With its clear, flowing language and impeccable scholarship, this Ernest Montus s Award-winning biography of the author of La Petite Fadette and A Winter in Majorca will be of great interest to those specializing in Sand and nineteenth-century literature--and to readers everywhere.   Review citations Publishers Weekly - 02/12/2018 Library Journal / Best Of The Best/Highly Recommended - pg. 56 - 05/15/2018 Library Journal / Exceptional Presentation - pg. 56 - 05/15/2018 Library Journal / Book Of Special Distinction - pg. 56 - 05/15/2018 Library Journal / Top 15 Book Of The Year - pg. 56 - 05/15/2018 Library Journal / Highly Recommended - pg. 56 - 05/15/2018
