She counted among her best friends the literary giants of the nineteenth century yet few people really know her story. Megan Marshall’s suburb biography brings her story to a new audience who will enjoy discovering the life of this strong vibrant woman living in a paternal and masculine world yet forging her own path. Margaret was H. Waldo Emerson’s confidante, Thoreau’s editor and the first female war correspondent for the New York Tribune. She experienced firsthand the Italian revolution of 1848-49 while becoming romantically involved with an Italian soldier. Her “questionable marriage “ to him and subsequent birth of their son add to the romantic yet tragic account of her last days within sight of America’s shores. Marshall says : “My aim was to bring Margaret Fuller into the wider arena. She’s been studied by scholars for so long, but her life is so compelling and dramatic. She deserves this kind of attention.” Any miniseries action? “I’m not sure I’m at liberty to say,” she says, “but there has been some interest.” Oh, and by the way it just happened to win the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Biography! !
