MEDIA REVIEWS
"Robin's life and John's account of it offers riches to historians of many interests."
-"Albion
"This is a well-written, comprehensive life of Elizabeth Robins, the American-born actress and novelist....For social history that links the United States and Britain, the stage and dominant literary circles, early to mid-twentieth-century politics, and the British suffrage movement, this book is required reading."
-"American Historical Review
"An absorbing and fascinating tale. I couldn't stop reading this compelling biography...Angela John has invented a new form--biography as social history. The reader is riveted."
-Jane Marcus, City College of New York
"A stage actress in America and London, Robins retired from the theater at age 40 and dedicated her life to writing and the woman suffrage movement. Johns, an academic, resurrects Robin's rich life and work, which included 14 novels as well as books on feminism."
-"Library Journal
"A sympathetic portrait based on meticulous scholarship...this biography will be a rich resource for historians of women, of the theatre, of turn of the century European and American society and culture."
-Judith P. Zinsser, Miami University
