Maybe from the library

NPR recently posted an essay about Anne Boyd Rioux's Meg, Jo, Beth, Amy: The Story of Little Women and Why it Still Matters, a scholarly examination of the themes of Alcott's classic novel. Boyd Rioux, a professor at the University of New Orleans, argues that Little Women "exerted more influence on women writers as a group than any other single book", and while I'm not sure I believe that (not Pride and Prejudice?), I am curious about her analysis of Little Women's role in shaping more modern examples of popular culture, like Sex in the City.
