The new book by Lyndall Gordon is partially related to the Brontës:
Outsiders: Five Women Writers who changed the world
Lyndall Gordon
Virago Press (26 Oct. 2017)
ISBN-13: 978-0349006338

Outsiders tells the stories of five novelists: Mary Shelley, Emily Brontë, George Eliot, Olive Schreiner, Virginia Woolf. We have long known their greatness, but by linking their lives as outsiders to their imaginative lives, this group biography looks afresh at their genius and, at the same time, their evolving alternative to the mess the dominant group has made of our world: a turn to women’s history of non-violence, nurture and listening.
