9780143119142: Lives Like Loaded Guns: Emily Dickinson and Her Family's Feuds

"Lives Like Loaded Guns...reads like a fabulous detective story...[Gordon] takes us into undiscovered territory." --The Washington Post , a great companion to fans of the film A Quiet Passion, starring Cynthia Nixon as Emily Dickinson. 

In 1882, Emily Dickinson's brother, Austin, began an adulterous love affair with the accomplished and ravishing Mabel Todd, setting in motion a series of events that would forever change the lives of the Dickinson family. Award-winning biographer Lyndall Gordon tells the story of the feud that erupted-and that still continues today. Making unprecedented use of letters, diaries, and legal documents, Gordon proposes a groundbreaking new solution to the secret behind the poet's insistent seclusion, presenting a woman beyond her time who found love, spirituality, and immortality all on her own terms.

The first major biography of Dickinson in nearly ten years, Lives Like Loaded Guns is a highly acclaimed story of creative genius, illicit passion, and betrayal that will forever change the way we view one of America's most important literary figures.

About the Author :

Lyndall Gordon is the author of Vindication: A Life of Mary Wollstonecraft, a New York Times Notable Book; Virginia Woolf: A Writer's Life, winner of the James Tait Black Prize for Biography; as well as biographies of T.S. Eliot and Charlotte Bronte. She is a senior research fellow at St. Hilda's College in Oxford, England.

From AudioFile :

Lyndall Gordon expands the conventional profile of poet Emily Dickinson as a delicate, reclusive spinster and introduces a more lively, passionate, and worldly woman. Wanda McCaddon uses her subtle British accent and crisp delivery to quickly establish this persona. She expertly captures Dickinson's acerbic wit from notes left to family and friends and successfully delivers the spiritual and vulnerable side often found in her poems. Although it includes some poetic analysis, this book focuses on Dickinson's personal life, which, as the title suggests, involved a surprising amount of controversy and drama. Gordon and McCaddon present a treat for those who enjoy Dickinson's poems as well as for those who simply enjoy a good story well told. M.O.B. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
