The Duchess Of Angus (eBook)
de Margaret Brown Kilik
Sobre o livro
Written in the 1950s and discovered by family members years after her death, Margaret Brown Kiliks shocking coming-of-age novel of the emotional and sexual brutality of young womens lives in wartime San Antonio deserves a place on the shelf alongside classic novels like Sylvia PlathsThe Bell Jar and Carson McCullerssThe Member of the Wedding.
The Duchess of Angus reworks Kiliks unusual personal history (her mother spent the 1930s running flophouse hotels all over the United States, leaving Margaret to be brought up by a host of relatives) into a riveting portrait of a young woman navigating a conflicted and rapidly changing world, one in which sex promises both freedom from convention and violent subjection to mens will. Strikingly modern in its depiction of protagonist Jane Davis and her gorgeous, unreadable friend Wade Howell,The Duchess of Angus covers some of the same emotional territory as novels like Emma ClinesThe Girls and Robyn WassermansGirls on Fire.
Includes an introduction by Jenny Davidson and contextual essays by Laura Hernández-Ehrisma and Char Miller.
