  1. Author: John, Eugenie (pseud. E. Marlitt)
    Title: Elsie
    Genre: fiction
    Note Relating to Cather: "There can be but a narrow enough future for a mind brought up upon the priggish distortions of the "Elsie books," weaned upon translations from Mrs. Marlitt [pen name for Eugenie John], and finally graduated into the pseudo-historical novels with which our presses are groaning and of which our public libraries keep thirty copies in circulation at a time."
