Geraldine Brooks on Bronson Alcott

I have yet to read Geraldine Brooks' novel March which takes as its central character the father of the March family from Louisa May Alcott's Little Women. (It's on my list.) But I was fascinated by her recent article in the Guardian about Bronson Alcott, father of Louisa May. This is a very different Bronson Alcott from the one I've encountered in biographies of Louisa May. Click here to read the article.

Thanks for the link, I liked reading it. I loved Brooks' _March_. It felt true to the original Louisa May Alcott books. I came away feeling like I knew the 'real' Mr. March, the one that Meg & Jo were too young to recognize from his letters home. -Melody
