Spanning her entire life, the fully annotated selections in this volume include well known recollections of the great Victorian novelist plus a large assortment not found in her biographies. Altogether they provide a fresh, vivid, and sometimes startling portrait of a controversial genius.

'This is a fascinating collection, marvellously wide-ranging and knowledgeable in scope; succinct and clear in editorial matter; informative and revealing at every step of the way. It rivals the labours of biographers and encyclopaedists in the sheer amount of light thrown on George Eliot's life and character.' - Dr. Paul Schlicke, Honorary Senior Lecturer, University of Aberdeen, UK

'By revealing as much about the visitors who flocked around Eliot as about the novelist herself, Collins conveys much of the multifaceted vibrancy of that world.' - Juliette Atkinson, TLS
