MARGOT PETERS has been Professor of English at the University of Wisconsin and holds a Ph.D. in Victorian literature. She is the author of Charlotte Bronte: Style in the Novel, Unquiet Soul: A Biography of Charlotte Brontė, Bernard Shaw and the Actresses, The House of Barrymore, and Mrs. Pat: The Life of Mrs. Patrick Campbell. She lives in Lake Mills, Wisconsin.From Library Journal:
Working from an impressive array of sources--Peters combed theatrical libraries and collections across the country and communicated with dozens of her subjects' associates and acquaintances--the author has created a definitive account of the lives and careers of John, Ethel, and Lionel Barrymore, "Broadway's Royal Family of Actors." Much more comprehensive than Ethel's Memoirs and Gene Fowler's Good Night Sweet Prince: The Life and Times of John Barrymore , both currently available only in reprint editions, this biography includes extensive notes for each of its 31 chapters as well as a selected bibliography. The author of excellent biographies of Charlotte Bronte ( Unquiet Soul , LJ 4/15/75) and Mrs. Patrick Campbell ( Mrs. Pat , LJ 2/1/84), Peters has made an outstanding contribution to the history of the American theater in her thoroughly readable account of three of its most illustrious artists.
