Description
In these profiles of women who were isolated through their dedication to duty or their immersion in writing, painting, or politics, Rosemary Dinnage explains how this crucial experience can teach and illuminate as well as hurt. Along the way, Dinnage briefly recounts the life stories of loners like the painter Gwen John and the philosopher Simone Weil; muses to partners of genius like Clementine Churchill and Giuseppina Verdi; determined individuals like the birth-control advocate Marie Stopes and the children's novelist Enid Blyton; such literary mavericks as Isak Dinesen and Rebecca West; and an assortment of aristocrats, lawbreakers, manic-depressives, transvestites, and storytellers.

"Alone! Alone! is a luminous collection of meditations on women who bore, or refused to bear, with the cards life dealt them. Rosemary Dinnage's great strengths include her keen psychological insight and her refusal to think inside the feminist box, and she has a unique ability to analyze and speculate about the conflicts of a personality without stooping to easy conclusions."óDaphne Merkin
