Lives Like Loaded Guns: Emily Dickinson and Her Family's Feuds by Lyndall Gordon
Lives Like Loaded Guns: Emily Dickinson and Her Family's Feuds

Debra Miller, September 1, 2011

It's fine if you are only slightly familiar with Emily Dickinson's poetry - as I was - you learn a lot along the way. I love when non-fiction books read like novels, and this one succeeds.
