The Lonely Other: A Woman Watching America
Cambridge Springs Press, 2014
The Lonely Other chronicles the life of a woman constantly facing new amazements. In "Wounded Chevy at Wounded Knee" (Best of the Best American Essays ) Diana Hume George recounts how she lived a trapped and futile life as a white teenage bride on an Indian reservation. As an adult she confronts drunken hunters outside her isolated cabin; she faces her fear of heights by climbing in the White Mountains; she unflinchingly delves into her long-standing engagement with Anne Sexton's poetry, and into her own father's suicide. Always she wonders: Can women learn to travel alone, on roads and in their daily lives, without fear?
