Read full description of the books:
This book was OK. I found it in my Little Free Library so thought I'd give it a try as I did read The Group many years ago. This biography was way too wordy for my taste. I read the first 2/3s and then skimmed the remainder. The woman must have been hyper - it made me dizzy just trying to follow her travels - here, there, everywhere - did she ever have time to rest? She wrote a lot so maybe she was one of those people who do well at a number of things while always on the go. I don't remember her as one opposing the Vietnam war, like Jane Fonda. Maybe because all of her articles were in publications that I never read. I haven't decided if I want to read any of the other books McCarthy wrote, maybe some day.

Read information about the authorMary McCarthy (1912–1989) was an American literary critic and author of more than two dozen books including the 1963 New York Times bestseller The Group. Born in Seattle, McCarthy studied at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, New York, and graduated in 1933. After moving to New York City, McCarthy became known for her incisive writing as a contributor to publications such as the Nation, the New Republic, and the New York Review of Books. Her debut novel, The Company She Keeps (1942), initiated her ascent to become one of the most celebrated writers of her generation, a reputation bolstered by the publication of her autobiography Memories of a Catholic Girlhood in 1957, as well as that of her now-classic novel The Group.
