The Daughter as Reader juxtaposes personal narrative with literary criticism to celebrate the ways in which literature enriches and shapes individual experience. Paula Marantz Cohen's lucidly written and compelling autobiographical essays read a variety of literary texts and cultural themes in provocative new ways, illuminated by feminist theory, psychoanalytic criticism, and literary history as well as by her experiences as daughter,sister, wife and mother. A Thomas Wyatt poem illumi-nates the author's reactions to an episode of sexual harass-ment; her private struggle with anorexia nervosa inspires questions on the significance of eating disorders within a larger feminine aesthetic; an analysis of Henry James's The Turn of the Screw yields startling insights into the art of child-rearing. The growing genre of autobiographical literary criticism--popularized by such works as Alice Kaplan's French Lessons: A Memoir and Marianna De Marco Torgovnik's Crossing Ocean Parkway: Readings by an Italian American Daughter--gains new ground with the publication of The Daughter as Reader. Courageously and creatively attempting to heal the breach between the private and the public--the literary and the critical, the mother and the professional, the wife and the feminist--it is essential reading for anyone interested in the connections between the personal, the literary, and the philosophical. "...provides stimulating readings of the various texts, but also a provocative commentary on such issues as the problem of father-pleasing among feminist scholars, the limitations of Freudian literalness in assessing fantasy and repression, and the relationship between (Blakean) experience and variant readings." --Annis Pratt, University of Wisconsin, Madison Paula Marantz Cohen is Professor of Humanities and Communications, Drexel University.

2017 RT Reviewers' Choice—Best Historical Mystery From USA Today and internationally bestselling author Leonard Goldberg comes The Daughter of Sherlock Holmes, a new thrilling tale of the great detective’s daughter and her companion Dr. John Watson, Jr. as they investigate a murder at the highest levels of British society. 1914. Joanna Blalock’s keen mind and incredible insight lead her to become a highly-skilled nurse, one of the few professions that allow her to use her finely-tuned brain. But when she and her ten-year-old son witness a man fall to his death, apparently by suicide, they are visited by the elderly Dr. John Watson and his charming, handsome son, Dr. John Watson Jr. Impressed by her forensic skills, they invite her to become the third member of their investigative team. Caught up in a Holmesian mystery that spans from hidden treasure to the Second Afghan War of 1878-1880, Joanna and her companions must devise an ingenious plan to catch a murderer in the act while dodging familiar culprits, Scotland Yard, and members of the British aristocracy. Unbeknownst to her, Joanna harbors a mystery of her own. The product of a one-time assignation between the now dead Sherlock Holmes and Irene Adler, the only woman to ever outwit the famous detective, Joanna has unwittingly inherited her parents’ deductive genius.
