Drawing upon extensive primary sources to reconstruct the authors’ private lives, Domestic Biographies illuminates how they lived when no one was looking.

Domestic Biographies offers an innovative and exciting architectural and domestic lens through which to study the lives and literature of America’s best-known Realists. Elif S. Armbruster, Assistant Professor of English at Suffolk University, received her Ph.D. in American Studies from Boston University. #
