Julie Phillips’ James Tiptree, Jr.: The Double Life of Alice B. Sheldon

After going up to the 36th floor of the University of Pittsburgh’s Cathedral of Learning, I picked up a copy of Julie Phillip’s James Tiptree, Jr.: The Double Life of Alice B. Sheldon from Jay’s Book Stall on Fifth Avenue. Jay’s a nice guy, and we talked about Kurt Vonnegut after I asked him about a picture of him and the author that he had taped to the wall.

I’ll probably find something useful in Phillip’s biography of Alice B. Sheldon to use in my utopias essay on Tiptree’s “Houston, Houston, Do You Read?” and Gilman’s Herland.  I’ll post a more detailed review of the book when I finish reading it.
