Romantic outlaws - the extraordinary lives of Mary Wollstonecraft and her daughter Mary Shelley

"Mary Wollstonecraft (1759-1797) and her daughter Mary Shelley (1797-1851) have each been the subject of numerous biographies by top tier writers, yet no author has ever examined their lives in tandem. Perhaps this is because these two amazing women never knew each other--Wollstonecraft died of infection at the age of 38, a week after giving birth to her daughter. Nevertheless their lives were closely intertwined, their choices, dreams and tragedies so eerily similar, it seems impossible to cons

The nearest thing to life by Wood, James, 1965-

The nearest thing to life

"In this remarkable blend of memoir and criticism, James Wood, noted contributor to the New Yorker, has written a master class on the connections between fiction and life.

The act of reading is understood here as the most sacred and personal of activities, and there are brilliant discussions of individual works—among others,

"An exploration of the effect our celebrity-dominated culture has on our ideas of living the good life. Our perceptions of beauty, health, success, and happiness are framed by a popular culture that is increasingly disconnected from reality. This isn't just a hyperbolic assertion.

The epidemics of obesity, heart disease, and diabetes are not tied to the overabundance of fat or carbs or any other specific nutrient.
