The Lady Actress review at Amazon

“Women wielding pens was much a much more uncommon thing. ‘The Lady Actress: Recovering the Lost Legacy of a Victorian American Superstar’ is a biography of Anna Cora Mowatt, telling the story of one of the first American playwrights, who got her start in the middle of the nineteenth century. Independent yet traditional, her life was an intriguing duality of the emerging role of the women during her era. An intriguing look at society and the arts through one woman, “The Lady Actress” is a choice pick, highly recommended.”
