This book is completely misplaced. It is a biography in letters of Emily Dickinson’s brother Austin focusing on his affair with Mabel Todd. I’m not sure why this would be of interest to anyone, with the exception of a Dickinson scholar wanting to ferret out all of the peripheral aspects of her life, and apparently it’s not of interest to the average reader of poetry. This book might see more circulation if placed correctly in the biography section where tales of elicit romance from the 19th Century may have more appeal.
