THE STORY OF EMILY DICKINSON'S MASTER: WILD NIGHTS! WILD NIGHTS! is a biographical novel based on its non-fiction forward on the most iconic of all American poets: "Emily Dickinson; Lover of Science & Scientist in Dark Days of the Republic." The book was well reviewed by THE EMILY DICKINSON INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY BULLETIN in 2010 in hardcopy. The reviewer said: “A page turning tale of a bitter sweet love affair (1857-1865)…Gioseffi, a compelling storyteller, cleverly incorporates Dickinson’s poems, capturing the intellectual, cultural, and political ideas and voices of the nineteenth century, from the stern Calvinist voices of Mary Lyon and the Reverend Aron Colton to the domestic Irish lilt of Margaret Maher, [Dickinson’ confidant and day servant.]…. Gioseffi helpfully advises Dickinson scholar’s to read her non-fiction foreword first. The novel is alive with detail and heartfelt emotion….Gioseffi introduces a Dickinson most readers have not met before.”
