On the Post this week a tribute to Dorothy Canfield Fisher, in anticipation of our publication on October 1st of The Deepening Stream.

Well yes, but in a different way. So here is the first of five photographs of one of America's greatest writers, none of them the classic picture with which most Persephone readers will be familiar. This is a studio portrait, she was maybe in her early '40s: if it was 1924, the same year as The Homemaker, then she would have been 45.
