9780440036548: Helen and teacher: The story of Helen Keller and Anne Sullivan Macy (Radcliffe biography series)

At the heart of this wonderful biography is the relationship between two great American women whose lives were bound together for all time. Joseph P. Lash, author of Eleanor and Franklin, follows this gifted, passionate, and humanly flawed pair for 100 years, from Annie's childhood in an almshouse in the 1860s, through decades of international fame, to Helen's death in 1968. Among the vivid characters associated with their lives are Alexander Graham Bell, Mark Twain, Andrew Carnegie, Charlie Chaplin, and Eleanor and Franklin Roosevelt.

From Scientific American:

Joseph P. Lash understands that the story of Helen Keller and Anne Sullivan Macy is the story of a marriage and he has written it accordingly. His sensitivity to the yearnings of his two subjects is acute.

Review:

... a deeply absorbing portrait of two intertwined lives whose meanings can't be understood separately. -- The New York Times Book Review, Joseph Featherstone
