Montgomery A1 Gammel, Irene,, PB University of Toronto Press PP Toronto; Buffalo YR 2005 SN 0802089240 9780802089243 0802086764 9780802086761 AB "Who ultimately is L. M. Montgomery, and why was there such an obsession with secrecy, hiding, and encoding in her life and fiction? Delving into the life of Canada's most enigmatic writer, The Intimate Life of L. M. Montgomery addresses these questions. The eleven essays illuminate Montgomery's personal writings and photographic self-portraits and probe the ways in which she actively shaped her life as a work of art. This is the first book to investigate both these writings - which include thousands of pages in journals, a memoir, correspondence, and scrapbooks - and her photography." "This volume fills in many of the blanks surrounding Montgomery's personal life. Engaging and erudite, it is a boon for scholars and Montgomery fans alike."--BOOK JACKET.
