American Bloomsbury

American Bloomsbury
by Susan Cheever

Any opportunity to gossip about Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, and Nathaniel Hawthorne is a good one. Susan Cheever's book American Bloomsbury is a fun read about America's philosophers living Concord, Mass. Ripe with gossip (everyone had a crush on Margaret Fuller) and historical anecdotes, this is a beach read for the smart set.
