Miss FullerBernard's new book earns Washington Post rave review

Miss Fuller, a new novel by April Bernard, associate professor of English and director of Skidmore's Creative Writing Program, has received a glowing review in The Washington Post Book World.

The book, published in April by Steerforth, is about "the most famous woman in America," whom no one knew. Miss Fuller is a historical novel that poses questions about how we see and treat the exceptional and dangerous agents of change among us. And it shows the price that any one person might pay, who strives to change the world for the better.

Book World critic Carolyn See calls the novel "fascinating and touching." She adds, "Reading Miss Fuller is like leafing through the family album and finding that great-aunt who ran away with, well, an Italian. Fuller is our rebellious streak, the part of us who gets in trouble, who puts her hand on a hot stove and gets soundly burned. I can't tell you how much I love this book ? and think a little less of Hawthorne."
