    English professor Catherine Prendergast wrote about a tragic love triangle among members of a bohemian writers’ colony at the turn of the 20th century in her new book, “The Gilded Edge.” She also detailed the challenges of researching the lives of the women involved, when society and its historical record were dominated by men.
