Consider This, Señora


Harriet Doerr

Reviewed by Arthur D Hayward, MD

Summer 2006 - Volume 10 Number 2

Harriet Doerr attended Smith College in her youth, but it wasn't until she reached the age of 67 that she earned an undergraduate degree in history from Stanford University. Then, at an age to retire, she entered the creative writing program at Stanford and began her own career as a fiction writer. She won awards for Stones for Ibarra in 1984; and nine years later, at age 83, she published this gem, Consider This, Señora.
