Summary
Traces the life of the popular British author, describes her relationship with George Bernard Shaw and other writers of the period, and looks at her involvement with the Fabian society
Amazon.com description: Product Description: E. Nesbit is one of the great children's writers of the century. Though known in her day for poems, short stories and novels, she is now remembered as the author of The Railway Children, The Treasures Seekers, Five Children and It, and many other stories of magic and adventure that are still triumphantly in print. Her readers love to think of her as reassuringly maternal, but this biography reveals her as a strong-minded, adventurous woman.
