Martha Stewart: a biography

Book Cover

Greenwood Press,
Pub. Date:
Whether they love her, loathe her, or just admit to swiping a few of her recipes once in a while, most will admit that she sets the standards for middle-class domesticity in America, however impossible that standard is to achieve. Price (writing, Metropolitan Sate College, Denver) writes for high school and general readers in this balanced treatment that gives Stewart her due without glossing over the highly-publicized details. She describes Stewart's rise from an owner of a catering business conducted from her home to an author, media guru, tastemaker and captain of industry, and her apparent success at overcoming her conviction and stretch in prison. Price stays clear of gossip and sticks to the facts, giving a full report of Stewart's trial as well as her real influence on the tastes of the great unwashed.
