Elaine Showalter is professor emerita of English and humanities at Princeton University. She is writing a biography of Julia Ward Howe.

Review: ‘Lisette’s List,’ by Susan Vreeland

In 1937, a young married couple, Lisette and André Honoré Roux, move from Paris to the village of Roussillon in Provence. Raised in an orphanage and passionate about art, Lisette is reluctant to give up a possible apprenticeship in a Paris gallery, and she can’t understand why André, who is an officer of the “Guild of Encadreurs, the association of picture-frame craftsmen,” wants to give up his position to care for his sickly grandfather, Pascal. “In the south of France, things happen as they should,” her husband insists.

Why I've been absent in recent months

Friends, this is hard for me to post about so bear with me. I know it's been a while since I've been around and I want to explain it here so I don't have to do it over and over again. This way I can just point to this post.

Thank You for your welcome! I like mysteries and thrillers. I enjoy watching crime television, its interesting to see how cases are sold. And also what types of things can cause a case to go unsolved. Real stories and the entertainment shows as well. How about you?
