Reviews

"Perhaps no other book provided a greater guide, as I set out on my youthful path, than Louisa May Alcott's most beloved novel, Little Women."
-From the Foreword by Patti Smith

"I have always gravitated towards the cozy book, and nothing is cozier than Little Women. It was one of the books that fostered my love of America, very early on, and showed me what makes a great character, particularly in headstrong Jo."
-Jane Green
