Publisher's Summary

A prominent sociologist, lecturer, and writer of the late nineteenth century, Charlotte Perkins Gilman's unorthodox concepts and lifestyle helped shape future generations of feminists. This audiobook includes her most enduring work, The Yellow Wallpaper as well as her 1913 article, "Why I Wrote The Yellow Wallpaper."
The Yellow Wallpaper told as a series of secret diary entries, the story is about a young woman, confined to her room and denied all creative outlets, who gradually suffers a mental breakdown.
"Why I Wrote The Yellow Wallpaper" originally published in an issue of the Forerunner, the article addresses the story behind The Yellow Wallpaper, revealing Gilman's own experience with postpartum psychosis.
Proceeds from sale of this title go to Reach Out and Read, an innovative literacy advocacy organization.
