A propos de cet article

Illustrated by John O'Hara Cosgrave. 348 pages, illustrations, cloth, rebound ex-library with usual library markings otherwise very good. From the Maine Writers Index on the Waterboro Public Library website: Elizabeth Foster [Mann] (1905 - 1963). Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Elizabeth Foster was the daughter of writer and playwright Maximilian Foster. She was educated at Miss Porter's School, Art Students League of America, and Columbia University. She was a freelance writer who published mostly novels and short stories; her stories were published in Redbook, Good Housekeeping, Home and Garden, and Trout and Stream. Her most important Maine-related book is The Islanders (1946), in which she wrote about her maternal grandfather, Frederick Stoever Dickson, and the multi-generational family experiences at the summer place he built on a Rangely Lake island. Her novels with a Maine setting include Singing Beach (1941), Dirigo Point (1943), and The House at Noddy Cove (1947; juvenile). Her other fiction titles are The Days Between (1942); Gigi, The Story of a Merry-Go-Round Horse (1943/1984; juvenile); Gigi in America (1945/1984; juvenile), set in Old Orchard Beach; and Children of the Mist (1961), biographical fiction about Lady Elizabeth Foster (1758-1824) and her relationship with the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. Foster is buried in the family plot in Evergreen Cemetery, Rangeley. N° de réf. du libraire 19659
