I would like to read a biography of Emily Dickinson. Do you know of a well written, not too highly academic one?

It has been suggested to me that I should research her life and try to read a biography about her by my therapist. Seeing as I know nothing about her and am not that familiar with her poems I am not quite sure what would be a good place to start. I did the Wiki thing but reviews of biographies on Amazon fall into "this is good" and "the author knows nothing and is just making it up".
Has anyone read a good biography on her and have suggestions of books or even websites I could go to get a gist of her life?
