1925. Atherton, was an American Feminist and writer of social and historical fiction, much of it set in California. Although her reputation is founded primarily on her California fiction and essays, as well her biography of Alexander Hamilton, Atherton also produced a number of Gothic stories, some of them, such as The Bell in the Fog, were considered significant achievements in the Gothic/supernaturalist tradition. The Crystal Cup begins: Old age will be served, said Mrs. Carteret grimly. But I suppose you think I am a long time dying. Gita made a face in the heavy shade of the bed hangings, but replied politely: I am glad to be here, Grandmother, and when it's my turn to die I'll take all the time I choose. She had a crisp clear voice and a staccato delivery, which she made no attempt to modify in the sickroom, and the old lady frowned. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
