Miriam Fuchs’s most recent book The Text Is Myself: Women’s Life Writing and Catastrophe (U of Wisconsin P, 2004) distinguishes catastrophe from crisis in late 19th and 20th century writing, and has chapters on Queen Lili‘uokalani (Hawaii’s Story by Hawaii’s Queen); H. D. (The Gift); Anna Banti (Artemisia); Grete Weil (The Bride Price); and Isabel Allende (Paula). The collection entitled Teaching Life Writing Texts, which she co-edited with Craig Howes, is forthcoming in the Options for Teaching series of the Modern Language Association. Other book publications are Breaking the Sequence: Women’s Experimental Fiction (Friedman and Fuchs, Princeton UP, 1989), a special issue of Review of Contemporary Fiction on women postmodernists, and Marguerite Young, Our Darling: Tributes and Essays (Dalkey, 1994). Published essays cover the work of William Gaddis, Marguerite Young, T.S. Eliot, preRaphaelite art and poetry, Djuna Barnes’s Nightwood, and Potiki by the Maori writer Patricia Grace. Biographical essays examine Queen Lili‘uokalani’s diaries, H.D.’s wartime autobiographical fiction, the association of Djuna Barnes, T. S. Eliot, and Emily Holmes Coleman, and the life of Hart Crane. Along with Craig Howes, she co-edits the UH journal Biography: An Interdisciplinary Quarterly.
