review 1: The only reason this is getting two stars instead of one is due to the infrequent moments of amazing writing that truly seemed to channel Emily. The rest would be best served in a shitty dime store romance novel. Talk about not understanding the psyche of women...who were his inspirations for this character? Fourteen-year-old girls!? Christ. Miserable, cheap crap. Go elsewhere for good Dickinson-inspired fiction. It sure as hell doesn't live in these pages.
review 2: This book was a fun and entertaining read. Jerome Charyn brings a lightness to Emily Dickinson that I think a lot of readers will be surprised to see. I am an Emily Dickinson fan, which is why I wanted to read this book, but I think many people, including myself, see a darkness in Emily Dickinson
... more's work. Most of her poems aren't exactly ... happy. Which is why this book is refreshing. I never would have thought that Emily Dickinson, the woman who ended up a spinster, could have had multiple love affairs. I'm glad Charyn thought of that, because it makes for great story. less

Tried to read it. Couldn't do it. Hated the written dialect and the creepy characters.
