If Constance Fenimore Woolson is remembered today, it is likely to be as a friend of Henry James, and a minor character in his much-chronicled life. Anne Boyd Rioux's biography is a reminder that Woolson was a serious and talented professional writer, with ambitions and achievements that have nothing to do with James.
