Praise

“Like Abigail Adams a century before her, Malvina Harlan used astute powers of observation and a natural gift with words to leave a written legacy, one that illuminated not only her life and that of her famous husband, Justice John Marshall Harlan, but the momentous times in which they lived.” —Linda Greenhouse, The New York Times

Some Memories of a Long Life is a unique historic find that vividly depicts a vanished age. Told with moving simplicity by an acute observer and participant, Malvina Harlan fills in the void left by historians.” —Kati Marton, author of Hidden Power: Presidential Marriages That Shaped Our Recent History

“Malvina Harlan’s are the observations you wish they wouldn’t leave out of history books. A charming slice of domestic—and national—history.” —Stacy Schiff, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Véra (Mrs. Vladimir Nabokov)

“[Malvina Shanklin Harlan’s] recollections of her married life shed considerable light on the complexities inherent in race relations in America.” —Publishers Weekly
