Paperback

'Lee beautifully evokes the strength and atmosphere of Willa Cather's novels and the sure touch of her language - her rootedness in the landscapes of her childhood; her disillusion and nostalgia; her anxiety about modernity . . . Hermoine Lee's reading of Cather rediscovers her as a disconcerting, complex writer of conflicting energies and sexual doubleness - a writer, as Hermoine Lee says, whose life was "saved up" to make into fictions which she wanted to seem "not stories at all, but life itself"'
~Nicci Gerrard, New Statesman
