Marilyn McEntyre

Marilyn McEntyre teaches at UC Berkeley and writes whenever she has a free morning. One of her first books, published under her maiden name, Chandler, Dwelling in the Text: Houses in American Fiction, took her to New England for the first of many visits to old houses. Her recent books include Caring for Words in a Culture of Lies, What’s in a Phrase, A Faithful Farewell, and A Long Letting Go, the last two of which are written for those who are dying and for their caregivers. Her many years of teaching American Literature also led her to write a book on how to read The Scarlet Letter — Reading Like a Serpent — which she hopes will send those with bitter memories of reading it in high school English hastening back to reconsider.
