Description

Jean Rhys was an artist of brilliance and fury best known for her late literary masterpiece, "Wide Sargasso Sea". But she was also a woman in constant psychological turmoil, whose blazing talent rescued her time and time again from the abyss. Lilian Pizzichini follows Rhys from her girlhood in Dominica, through three failed marriages and five misunderstood books, up to her death in 1979. This is an unforgettable portrait of a woman whose writing was both her life and her lifeline.
