Abstract:

"Wendy Fairey grew up among books. As the shy and studious daughter of famed Hollywood columnist Sheilah Graham--F. Scott Fitzgerald's lover during the last years of his life--she began as a child reading her way through the library Fitzgerald had assembled for her mother and escaped into the landscape of classic English novels. Their protagonists became her intimates, starting wih David Copperfield, whose sensibility and aspirations seemed so akin as her own. She felt as plain as Jane Eyre but craved the panach of Becky Sharp. English novels squired her to adulthood, and Bookmarked is a memoir of that journey.... In this intimate and inspiring book, Wendy Fairey shows that her love of reading has been both a source of deep personal pleasure and the key to living a fulfilling and richly self-examined life"--
