Queen Victoria was an avid reader of her works and Charles Darwin said of her, "...one ought not to look at her as a woman." The novelist Margaret Oliphant said "as a born lecturer and politician she [Martineau] was less distinctively affected by her sex than perhaps any other, male or female, of her generation.
Famed for her writing, sharp intellect, and wonderful wit, Harriet Martineau was a friend or acquaintance of nearly every English luminary of the mid-nineteenth century. Her writing included fiction but was primarily essays on all the great issues of her day.
In this witty autobiography, she expounds on travel, America, slavery, friends, being a writer, fame, her failing health, and mesmerism. She never fails to entertain!
For the first time ever, this long-out-of-print book is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones.
