Story | Nov 8, 1992At first glance, Diane Johnson, author of six novels, two biographies and a book of essays, isn't the usual image of a Western heroine. Or at any rate, she seems more the schoolmarm than the pioneer woman behind the plow. For years Johnson taught Victorian literature; she has a demure prettiness and demeanor that make you think she should be the author of something decorous like "The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady," rather than "The Shadow Knows" or "Terrorists and Novelists."
