A fascinating biography about Augusta Jane Evans, a nearly forgotten writer who was nevertheless one of the most popular writers of her era. She wrote nine novels about southern women, including St. Elmo, which sold a staggering million copies within four months of its release in 1866. William Fidler traces the life of Augusta Jane Evans from her birth in 1835 in Columbus, Georgia till her death in Alabama in 1909. 

William P. Fidler was a professor of English at the University of Alabama from 1930 to 1956.

“In lesser hands, this biography would have been either a panegyric or a burlesque. Instead, the author has added an illuminating chapter to the history of popular taste.” —New York Times
