Melanie BenjaminComposed: A Memoir

In her national bestseller Alice I Have Been, Melanie Benjamin imagined the life of the woman who inspired Alice in Wonderland. Benjamin reads from and discusses her jubilant new novel The Autobiography of Mrs. Tom Thumb, in which she shines a dazzling spotlight on another fascinating female figure whose story has never fully been told: Mercy Lavinia “Vinnie” Bump, a woman who became a nineteenth century icon and inspiration-and whose most daunting limitation became her greatest strength.

($25.00) Random House ISBN #978-0-385-34415-9. You can visit Melanie Benjamin’s official web site as well.
