Truth As far as her family was concerned, the worst thing Joanna had ever done was marry Rory Grayson. The best thing she'd ever done was divorce him. As far as Joanna was concerned, she never wanted to see him again. Or Consequences But if she did see him again-and felt nothing-J oanna would know she was ready to remarry with a free heart. o regrets, no hard feelings.

H I can't get the story spread across the newspapers, my name's not Rory Grayson." Joanna had sudden visions of sensational tabloid stories. "Don't call the police!" she yelled. "You heard the lady. Don't call the police," Rory reiterated strongly. "Will someone please open the door for me and summon the elevator?" He strode into the reception area, still carrying Joanna firmly in his arms. "Your appointments, Mr. Grayson! What will I do? What will I say?" cried the young woman behind the reception desk. "Say I'm off for the dirtiest weekend that any man could hope to have. That will satisfy everybody. " He strode into the waiting elevator and grinned with wicked satisfaction as the doors slid shut.

From This sensitive and elegantly written life of Dorothy Wordsworth (1771–1855), sister of the poet William Wordsworth, centers on four small notebooks, her so-called Grasmere Journals. These journals reveal how William functioned as Dorothy's male muse and how she, more traditionally, was his. What is most untraditional, and certainly peculiar, is the not-quite-stated true relation between brother and sister. Commentators and biographers describe Dorothy Wordsworth as having virtually no inner life, existing solely for and through her brother. Yet, Wilson relates, the opium-eater De Quincey found her a most sensuous creature; she was a big part of William's friend with Coleridge as well. First teasing out Dorothy's truly rich interior life through careful examination of the journals and other writings, Wilson (Literary Seductions) then uncovers the nature of Dorothy's emotional connections to William, his work, his wife and even the French mistress he had as a younger man. Most controversial in the Grasmere Journals are several blotted lines regarding William's wedding ring--which Dorothy wore to sleep the night before the wedding. These lines, as well as Dorothy's visionary tendencies, her migraines and trances, almost of an epileptic nature, and a long depressive decline are scrupulously analyzed. 31 illus. (Feb. 24) ¬ Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. ReviewWilson continues her examination of the fraught terrain where sex and literature meet (Literary Seductions, 2000, etc.) in a bleak biography of the celebrated poet's unmarried sister.Dorothy Wordsworth (1771 - 1855) shared the home, the vision, the language, the life and - at least upon occasion, it seems - the bed of her brother William (1770 - 1850), devoting herself to his art and comfort. Wilson begins with one of the oddest moments in literary history, the morning of William's 1802 marriage, when he went into his sister's bedroom to retrieve the wedding ring she had worn all night. The author will return to this incident from a new perspective in the final pages, but initially she moves back to proceed in fairly chronological fashion, quoting liberally from the principals' papers and commenting on the Wordsworths' relation with others, principally Samuel Taylor Coleridge. (Wilson sees an almost psychic connection between Coleridge and Dorothy, both of whom William in a sense betrayed.) The text focuses largely on Dorothy's Grasmere Journals, kept during her sojourn in the Lake Country with William from 1800 to 1803, which Wilson judges as evidence that the poet's sister was "one of our finest nature writers." William's marriage to Mary Hutchinson was traumatic, but Dorothy honeymooned with the couple and lived with them for the rest of her days, which were darkened from the 1830s on by mental illness. Wilson veers occasionally into uncertain terrain. Though it might be wiser to eschew contemporary medical and psychological analyses of 200-year-old somatic illnesses and relation, the undaunted author quotes Oliver Sacks on migraines and diagnoses elderly Dorothy with "depressive pseudodementia." Wilson frequently summarizes the research of others, then declares it inadequate, wrong, biased. Scholars will find it difficult to locate documentation for such assertions or simply to check contexts for quotations: The author provides no endnotes, just an appended "bibliographic essay." Still, much of her well-researched text is graceful, perceptive and poignant.An often lyrical ballad with some superfluous, unmelodious stanzas. (Kirkus Reviews). U N C O R R E C T E D P R O O F.

(Feb. 24) ¬ Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. From Booklist*Starred Review* Wilson investigated such intimate writerly alliances as the marriage of Mary Shelley and Percy Bysshe Shelley in Literary Seductions (2000) and now returns to the realm of the Romantic poets in this highly charged and forthright biography of Dorothy Wordsworth, sister and muse to William. Speculation runs high regarding the true nature of the intense bond between these unconventional siblings known for their epic country walks during which William composed the poetry Dorothy put to paper. Reunited after a harsh childhood separation in the wake of their mother’s early death, they lived and traveled together even after William married Mary Hutchinson (Dorothy even accompanied them on their honeymoon). Wilson emphasizes Dorothy’s heightened response to nature in her writing, especially the oft-studied Grasmere Journals, analyzing both her rhapsodic passages and “crisp forensic objectivity,” and surmises that Dorothy suffered from migraines and anorexia. Wilson then squarely addresses the incest question, arguing that Dorothy and William’s closeness was spiritual, not carnal, and that the two writers needed each other to feel whole. A “perpetual third party,” Dorothy Wordsworth finally steps out of the shadows in this assured and involving reclamation of an intriguing, literary figure. --Donna Seaman.
