Virginia Wolf on Louise Fitzhugh (seriously)

A very exciting parcel came to our house today! Finally, my long-awaited copy of Louise Fitzhugh— a biography by the carefully named Virginia L. Wolf– has arrived from BetterWorldBooks. There are not a lot of resources on Fitzhugh around, though the Purple Socks Tribute Site is pretty cool. But I was eager to learn more about this author (who wrote Harriet the Spy, for those of you not in the know), and this book had been lost in the depths of Robarts library, and the one copy in the Public Library system was not for circulation. So, obviously, another book purchase was necessary. I can’t wait to read it.

    Ooooh! Exciting!

    Harriet the Spy! I loved that book so much. I'm very interested in finding out about Fitzhugh's life…hope it's a good read.

  3. Kerry says:

    The most appallingly edited book of all time, but with thoughtful criticism and the biographic details were pretty interesting. Fitzhugh is certainly an enigma. It was also really great to read Northrop Frye quoted in relation to The Long Secret and such serious consideration of YA fiction.

  4. Amy Lavender Harris says:

    Whee! I had no idea a biography of Fitzhugh existed, and have just now ordered my own copy. I *was* Harriet the Spy.
