Male literary friendships are the stuff of legend; imagine Byron and Shelley, Fitzgerald and Hemingway. however the world’s best-loved lady authors are typically mythologized as solitary eccentrics or remoted geniuses. Coauthors and real-life buddies Emily Midorikawa and Emma Claire Sweeney end up this flawed, because of their discovery of a wealth of bizarre collaborations: the friendship among Jane Austen and one of many kinfolk servants, playwright Anne Sharp; the bold feminist writer Mary Taylor, who formed the paintings of Charlotte Brontë; the transatlantic friendship of the likely aloof George Eliot and Harriet Beecher Stowe; and Virginia Woolf and Katherine Mansfield, commonly portrayed as sour foes, yet who, in truth, loved a posh friendship fired by way of an underlying erotic charge.

via letters and diaries that experience by no means been released earlier than, A mystery Sisterhood resurrects those forgotten tales of girl friendships. They have been occasionally scandalous and risky, occasionally supportive and encouraging, yet always—until now—tantalizingly consigned to the shadows.
