A descendant of Brigham Young, Marguerite Young graduated from Butler University in Indiana with a B.A. in English and French, and in 1936 she received an M.A. from the University of Chicago; eventually, she also earned a Ph.D. at the University of Iowa. After living for a time in the Midwest, teaching at various universities, she moved to New York, where she taught at the New School for Social Research. Young wrote fiction, poetry, a non-fiction "epic" about the utopian community of New Harmony, Indiana, and a biography of socialist Eugene V. Debs. She finished her monumental 1,200-page work of fiction, MISS MACINTOSH MY DARLING in 1963; it was published in 1965 and immediately proclaimed "a master work" by the New York Times Book Review, "a massive achievement" by Jerzy Kozinsky, and "the Great American Novel" by a surprising number of critics.
