Louisa May Alcott (1832-88) was brought up in Pennsylvania, USA. She turned to writing in order to supplement the family income and had many short stories published in magazines and newspapers. Then, in 1862, during the height of the American Civil War, Louisa went to Georgetown to work as a nurse, but she contracted typhoid. Out of her experiences she wrote Hospital Sketches (1864) which won wide acclaim, followed by an adult novel, Moods. She was reluctant to write a children's book but then realized that in herself and her three sisters she had the perfect models. The result was Little Women (1868) which became the earliest American children's novel to become a classicFrom AudioFile:
In the continuing story of the March sisters, the "little women" grow up and marry, providing much occasion for advice on how to be a "womanly woman," and focus on the pleasures of being poor. King renders a fully characterized reading of this period piece. She gracefully adjusts her voice to the many personalities and easily differentiates characters. Her dramatics accentuate the spirit of the text and invoke the days when reading aloud was a primary form of entertainment. E.L.C. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
