Books: The Marriage of Opposites by Alice Hoffman

I liked this book.  I have never read any novels by Alice Hoffman who is a prolific writer. Most of her 30+ books are aimed at a young adult audience and even though I read that genre, I somehow missed her.   511 more words

Alice Hoffman - Museum of Extraordinary Things (2014)

I’d heard of Alice Hoffman, author of The Dovekeepers, but never took the time to read anything she’d written. I fell in love with this book quite fast, and not only because it deals with some of my favourite subjects, (freakshows, immigrants living on the Lower East Side, The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire), but because Alice Hoffman is an incredibly talented and beautiful writer. 158 more words
