4 Novels to Read after Watching Greta Gerwig’s Oscar-Nominated Little Women
The hype around Little Women has been hard to ignore, but in this case, it’s richly deserved because it’s exquisite. Director Greta Gerwig’s Academy Award–nominated film may be the latest in a long line of adaptations of Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel, but it offers a new lens through which to see the March girls, characters many of us have known and adored since childhood. While Jo’s story remains an undeniable highlight, her sisters’ joys and heartbreaks become equally relatable and moving to behold. Truth be told, I came away from the movie with what felt like a whole new understanding of each of them. Perhaps that’s why I feel like I can recommend what novel you should read next, based on the March sister you felt the greatest kinship with in the movie.
