The review of that book in the NYTimes Book Review on Sept. 10 was by
Stephen King, and very interesting indeed.  He points out the
similarities, as well as the differences, between it and his own *Rose
Madder*.  He also discusses Alcott's two literary personas - daylight
reality (the books we are more familiar with) and midnight fantasies
(this and other "alternative" Alcott works.  In fact, he mentions two
books - *Louisa May Alcott Unmasked: Collected Thrillers,* and
*Alternative Alcott,* which are sensation stories.  The review and
discussion of Alcott's work, her postion as the family breadwinner, and
as an articulate feminist is really good.
