Essayist and newspaper columnist Fanny Fern enjoyed a rapid -- and highly unlikely -- rise to fame after an early life beset by tragedy and misfortune. Soon after accepting the position that established her as the highest-paid female writer in the United States, Fern began work on Ruth Hall, a highly autobiographical novel that paralleled her own life experiences in many regards. Today, scholars and critics agree that the novel is an exceptionally well-written exploration of what life as a female literary icon was like in the late nineteenth century.
