LETTERS OF ALICE B. TOKLAS, STAYING ON ALONE, Burns Edward (ed)
2 Burns Edward (ed) LETTERS OF ALICE B. TOKLAS, STAYING ON ALONE
USA Liveright 1973 1st Hardcover Very Good Very Good 23.5cm 
This book from a US county library but may have been a reference work rather than a lending copy, reference card at rear, id on spine, plastic wrap, VGood condition. Clean pages. Clean, unclipped jacket. 426 well bound pages with bw photos throughout. Edited by Edward Burns, intro by Gilbert Harrison. review - Gertrude Stein died in 1946, 20 years before Alice B. Toklas met her own end - - the personal letters in this nicely illustrated volume (over 400 pages) are chiefly the ones that Alice wrote to numerous people of note subsequent to Stein's death. The earlier-period Toklas letters are not included here. Toklas was a remarkable lady and one would be hard-pressed to unearth a friend who was more devoted to her companion. Anyone who said something negative about Stein was immediately relegated to Toklas' lengthy S***-list. Much of the correspondence here (maybe 40%) was sent to her mentor of sorts, Carl Van Vechten and his lovely wife Fania. Other letters went to people like Sir Francis Rose, Brion Gysin, and so on, often yielding unique insights on Stein's and Toklas' numerous acquaintances and friends such as Picasso, Juan Gris, Virgil Thomson, and many other people of historical significance. Documentation of the escalating feud between Toklas and the Stein family subsequent to Gertrude's death also provides great trivial fodder for the reader's consumption. For fans of the two ladies, however, this book is a treasure trove of "hot gossip" and insight on Toklas' compelling personality.

Victorian Feminists, Caine, Barbara
3 Caine, Barbara Victorian Feminists
Clarendon Paperbacks 1993 Paperback Very Good None issued 21.5cm 
284pp & just under the 500g mark - This is a study of Victorian feminism which focuses on four leading feminists: Emily Davies, Frances Power Cobbe,Josephine Butler, and Millicent Garrett Fawcett. This approach enables Barbara Caine to uncover the range, diversity, and complexity of Victorian feminism, and to examine the relationship between personal experience and feminist commitment. Professor Caine sets her carefully researched biographical studies of the four women, each with her own fascinating history, in the context of the Victorian feminist movement. She explores the ideas and strategies of feminists in the late nineteenth century, analysing the tensions which arose as they sought to achieve their aims. In particular, she traces the complex relationship between party politics and feminist commitment. Barbara Caine's insight into the vision and beliefs of these Victorian feminists is balanced by her scholarly understanding of the society within which they worked. She gives us vivid and perceptive portraits of four very different individuals, who nevertheless shared a commitment to improving the lot of women.

The Radical Twenties: Writing, Politics, and Culture, Lucas, John
7 Lucas, John The Radical Twenties: Writing, Politics, and Culture
Rutgers Uni Press 1997 Softcover Very Good None issued 21.5cm 
-from cover > This book brings together writers from the 1920's who have never before been collectively studied in regard to their political radicalism. Drawing on the works of D. H. Lawrence, Virginia Wolf, Sylvia Townsend Warner, Ivor Gurney, Patrick Hamilton, and others, John Lucas identifies the decade as a time of both political activism and of deliberately transgressive behavior, particularly among women. The book meets head-on the argument of earlier commentators who take for hedonism of the Bright Young Things. Against such elements, Lucas places the work and lifestyles of those who, even if they began by regarding themselves as members of the "lost generation," were determined to find ways out of despair. review >>> "A stimulating and generous-spirited book." -- Times Literary Supplement 263 crisp white pp, less than 500g for post to you.

10 Morgan, Susan Place Matters gendered geography in Victorian women's travel books about Southeast Asia
USA Rutgers Uni Press 1996 Papeback Very Good None issued 22cm 
Susan Morgan's study of materials and regions previously neglected in contemporary postcolonial studies begins with the transforming premise that "place matters." Concepts derived from writings about one area of the world cannot simply be transposed to another area, in some sort of global theoretical move. Moreover, place in the discourse of Victorian imperialism is a matter of gendered as well as geographic terms. Morgan makes extensive use of theorists whose work on imperialism in Southeast Asia is unfamiliar to most American academics. This vivid examination of a different region and different writings emphasizes that in Victorian literature there was no monolithic imperialist location, authorial or geographic. The very notion of a "colony" or an "imperial presence" in Southeast Asia is problematic. Morgan is concerned with marking the intersections of particular Victorian imperial histories and constructions of subjectivity. She argues that specific places in Southeast Asia have distinctive, and differing, masculine imperial rhetorics. It is within these specific rhetorical contexts that women's writings, including their moments of critique, can be read. 600g + 345 perfect pp

A Woman's Place An Oral History of Working-Class Women 1890-1940, Roberts, Elizabeth
11 Roberts, Elizabeth A Woman's Place An Oral History of Working-Class Women 1890-1940
Wiley-Blackwell 1995 Hardcover Good Good 23.5cm 
ex-lib with the "borrowing page" removed o/wise all good internallyA Woman's Place is based upon Elizabeth Roberts's interviews with 160 elderly people from the towns of Barrow, Lancaster and Preston. They recall their memories of family life as children, youths and adults in the period between the last decade of the nineteenth century and the outbreak of the Second World War. A Woman's Place shows working-class women to be conscious of, and secure in, the separate, private sphere of home and family, with little feeling of male oppression, but more of class oppression and economic injustice to man and woman alike.

Fifth Avenue, 5 A.M. Audrey Hepburn and Breakfast at Tiffany's, Wasson, Sam
12 Wasson, Sam Fifth Avenue, 5 A.M. Audrey Hepburn and Breakfast at Tiffany's
UK Aurum 2010 Hardcover Excellent Excellent 20.5cm 
This is both a review & a contents-tempter > In "Fifth Avenue, 5 A. M.: Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Audrey Hepburn, and the Dawn of the Modern Woman", Sam Wasson offers the reader more than just an insider's look into the making of this movie. Wasson, a social historian, delves into so many worlds in this book it is sure to have something for everyone. The movie industry insider tidbits and chronology leading to the making of Breakfast at Tiffany’s is reason enough to read this book, but, Wasson gives his readers so much more than this. "Fifth Avenue, 5 A.M." is like a slice of cultural pie that encompasses the way women were portrayed in the 1950’s and the foreshadowing of the new "modern woman" of the 1960’s. The unlikely center of this shift into the modern woman is none other than sweet, timid Audrey Hepburn and her portrayal of Truman Capote’s Holly Golightly. There is so much "scoop" in this book it’s impossible to even attempt to touch it here. 231 crisp pp & less than 500g. Photo section centre. review (do you really need one?) > Great biography. Really interesting because it wasn't completely about Audrey. Had to watch the movie as soon as I was done- it was like watching a behind the scenes documentary.
