Author Rating: A

I read My Ántonia, “the novel Cather herself considered her finest achievement,” back in 1981 as part of a women writers course and absolutely loved it. I don’t know how it is that I never read another of her novels but I plan to remedy that this summer.

Cather’s first novel, Alexander’s Bridge, was published in 1912, her last novel, Sapphira and the Slave Gir, was published in 1940, two years before she died at age 73. The Wikipedia page for Cather is quite good.
