My Girls

What do you do as soon as you’ve seen Greta’s ‘Little Women’? Read the whole of Alcott’s back catalogue, of course! This collection of short stories is a compulsory read. Although not as fiery as the Jo and Amy fiasco, or Jo and Teddy or Jo and...well, anyone really these girls are a colourful bunch. Exploring just what women and girls can do with just a little nudge, these have a classic Alcott feel. Funny, realistic and sometimes strongly moralistic, but always warm and beautifully written.

Louisa May Alcott (1832-1888) discovered writing at an early age, where she often thought up stories about villains, ghosts, or damsels in distress. Driven by economic misfortunes, she worked several jobs but later chose writing as her sole purpose. She was a devout feminist and did not marry throughout her life. Her most famous works include the novel "Little Women", its sequel "Little Men", as well as "Good Wives" and "An Old-Fashioned Girl". Her masterpiece "Little Women" was made into a highly successful 2019 movie starring Saoirse Ronan and Timothée Chalamet.
