My sixth and most recent book is The Power of Adrienne Rich: A Biography, published by Nan A. Talese / Doubleday in 2020. It is due out in paperback in October 2022. I began work on this biography in 2014, two years after Rich died. My archival research involved reading thousands of pages of unpublished letters, journals, and other unpublished materials held by Harvard’s Schlesinger Library and other university libraries across the country. I also interviewed dozens of people who knew Rich and her late husband, Alfred Conrad. My interview subjects included Cynthia Rich, Catharine MacKinnon, Robin Morgan, Janice Raymond, Donald Hall, Rose Marie Carruth, and Dana Gioia.
