Lane illuminates the life and philosophy of feminist Gilman (1860-1935), whose story ``The Yellow Wallpaper'' reflected a personal experience with depression; we learn of Gilman's friends and family, her international recognition as a theorist and social commentator, and her belief in women's rights to full equality and autonomy.
