Miss Betsey: A Memoir of Marriage by Eugene Genovese



“Gene Genovese’s tribute to his late wife moved me deeply not only because of the touching beauty of his prose but also because he and Betsey are figures who shaped my life. It is impossible for me to read this work without recalling my first meeting with this remarkable couple many decades ago and about how deeply they impressed me even then. Gene’s recollections about Betsey ring true even for someone like me, who was merely her distant admirer. Like her husband, she had many such devotees, all of whom she fully deserved.”—Paul Gottfried, Raffensperger Professor of Humanities at Elizabethtown College and author
