On Being Told That Her Second Husband Has Taken His First Lover, and Other Stories

PDF EBook by Tess Slesinger

EBook Description

I'm very excited by the title of this collection. On Being Told That Her Second Husband Has Taken His First Lover, and Other Stories PDF EBook And by the snazzy Pop Art cover of my edition from 1962. (The book was originally published in 1935.) I think I'm going to really really like this. I found it today at the New Dominion Bookshop in Charlottesville, VA. I keep stumbling upon women writers who don't seem to be read much anymore, for reasons expounded upon in the intros to these books. (Lionel Trilling on Tess Slesinger: "She has the bright controlled subjectivity of a feminine prose manner inaugurated by Katherine Mansfield, given authority by Virginia Woolf, and used...with a happy acerbity of wit super- PDFadded.") I look forward to digging into this "feminine" prose.

Other books I found in Charlottesville: Katherine Mansfield's letters (funny because I just started reading her), "A Self-Portrait" by May Sarton (a transcript of a film chronicling her life and work), "Simple Portrait" by Annie Ernaux (in the sexy-French-affair genre), "The Star Cafe" by Mary Caponegro, plus a fun YA novel for fifty cents.

Oh, and this was after buying a book comprised of narratives by former slaves, "My Folks Don't Want Me to Talk About Slavery," which I got at Monticello. The interviews took place during the Federal Writers' Project in the 1930s, and the narratives are housed at the Library of Congress. Like this book?
