Quote by Brenda Longfellow
"I mainly work in biography, and all the biographies I have done have been about women, so I guess that is my bias. I am especially interested in historic subjects and using a biography as a way to think through as deeply as possible the contradictions that women live with. I've often chosen subjects where there has been dissonance between the public image of the woman and her private experience."
