Summary
  • Award-winning biographer Fitzsimons uncovers the little-known details of Nesbit's life, introducing readers to the Fabian Society cofounder and fabulous socialite who hosted legendary parties and had admirers by the dozen, including George Bernard Shaw
  • Edith Nesbit is considered the first modern writer for children and the inventor of the children's adventure story. Fitzsimons uncovers the little-known details of her life, introducing readers to the Fabian Society cofounder and socialite who hosted legendary parties and had admirers by the dozen, including George Bernard Shaw. Through Nesbit's letters and archival research, we learn she was a prolific lecturer and writer on socialism, and incorporated these ideas into her writing, influencing a generation of children. -- adapted from jacket
