The life and times of Anna Cora Mowatt: “Fashioned Lady, Recovering the Lost Legacy of a Victorian American Superstar.” By Kelly S. Taylor, Ph.D.
Edgar Allan Poe, Henry David Thoreau, and Ralph Waldo Emerson were among her fanboys, but too few people know about their idol. The Wapshott Press is honored to present the life and times of the fabulous Anna Cora Mowatt to her well deserved, and long overdue, larger audience. More information and a pdf of Chapter 1.

    This is very exciting! I’ve always found many of the forgotten figures of the 19th century to be fascinating – especially women writers. This book is a great idea… but why such a garish cover?!

  3. Oh, Rob!

    Garish? Not even lurid, mind-blowing or seizure-inducing?

    We were going for Exciting! Enticing! Buy me before I leap off the shelf into your arms! For God’s sake, Anna Cora Mowatt is in here!

    Seriously, I made the author do the cover so I am absolved of all responsibility for it. I like this cover, I think it’s cool, eye-catching, and the very idea of Victorian American design. It’s the kind of pattern Anna Cora might have had a couch or footstool upholstered in. Or something. I’m pretty sure she wouldn’t wear it.

    However, if you’d really like a cover with a lower volume, I’ll do a special order for you, but it won’t be $8.40 or free shipping.

    Ribbing aside, thanks for leaving a comment, Rob. I’m glad to be able publish a well-written, well-researched book on someone who is largely forgotten and shouldn’t be, cover notwithstanding. At least people will notice the book from across the room.
