I'm giving up on this book because, despite my interest in the subject matter, it's just rubbing me up the wrong way. McDowell's style reminds me of a try-too-hard undergraduate essay (and I would know, I wrote many of them). She's trying desperately to twist every piece of evidence to fit her hypothesis and as a result a lot of the points she makes are seriously reaching.

BETWEEN THE SHEETS tackles the perennial problem for biographers of writers with difficult private lives, which is how to reconcile the work and the life. The women writers whom Lesley McDowell addresses all had difficult lives, particularly in terms of their relationships.
