Natasha Walter reviews a biography of Frances Hodgson Burnett:

Frances Hodgson Burnett: The Unpredictable Life Of The Author Of The Secret Garden by Gretchen H. Gerzina

[Burnett's] great fame brought with it drawbacks too; it is quite salutary to realise that it is not only in our times that writers are hounded by journalists to expose their private lives. Her divorce in 1898 made front page news, her ex-husband was harassed for his thoughts on the breakup, and the New York Times and the Washington Post used it as the basis for speculation on how her success and "advanced ideas" on women had contributed to her marital failure.
