Lesley McDowell's BETWEEN THE SHEETS in New York Times Book Review

Lesley's McDowell's new study of the literary liaisons of nine influential 20th women writers, Between the Sheets, is reviewed in the April 4 issue of The New York Times Book Review: "McDowell, a literary journalist in Scotland, has culled incredibly juicy details. With so many affairs and broken hearts, the most suprising thing is that anything got written in the last 100 years."

Featured in Between the Sheets:

Katherine Mansfield and John Middleton Murry
H.D. and Ezra Pound
Rebecca West and H.G. Wells
Jean Rhys and Ford Maddox Ford
Anais Nin and Henry Miller
Simone de Beauvoir and Jean-Paul Sartre
Martha Gelhorn and Ernest Hemingway
Elizabeth Smart and George Barker
Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes
