9780571259038: Letty Fox: Her Luck

You can't help liking Letty Fox. She is the eponymous hero of this novel, and what a big, energetic, sprawling novel it is. Letty Fox, with brio and relish, describes her picaresque adventures in the New York and London of the 1930s and 1940s. She is surrounded by a family notable for its size, eccentricity and marital irregularities. Letty herself has many affairs but finds marriage elusive. Bizarre, satirical and imaginative, first published in 1947, this powerful portrayal of a woman who might have been independent but chose otherwise stands as one of Christina Stead's most impressive works. Christina Stead is much more than the author of "The Man Who Loved Children". To remind readers forcefully of this, "Faber Finds" is reissuing nine of her works: "The Beauties and Furies", "For Love Alone", "House of All Nations", "Letty Fox: Her Luck", "A Little Tea", "A Little Chat", "Miss Herbert", "The People with Dogs", "The Puzzleheaded Girl" and "The Salzburg Tales".

About the Author:

Christina Stead (1902-1983) was an Australian-born novelist and short-story writer acclaimed for her satirical wit and penetrating psychological characterisations. She wrote fifteen novels and several volumes of short stories in her lifetime, during which she spent many years living abroad in Europe and the USA, returning to Australia to live only late in life. Considered by many to have been one of Australia's greatest novelists, Stead's best-known and most acclaimed novel, The Man Who Loved Children, is largely based on her own childhood, and was first published in 1940.

Review:

No wonder [Stead’s] work has reminded many of Tolstoy, Ibsen, Joyce—any tag to signify that the reader is offered breadth of vision and honest depth of enjoyment, with neither sacrificed to the other...Her works bridge the gap between that humanistic preoccupation with character which the novel is said to have lost in the past, and that modern spirit which any novel worthy of its time must have. What her books teach us is that wisdom is the novelist’s ultimate requirement.
— The New York Times Book Review

[Christina Stead] is really marvelous. She gropes here, she gropes there, she introduces this subject and that subject, seems to talk to no purpose—talk and talk! Then suddenly, with a wild outburst, she understands something. A discovery has been made.
— Saul Bellow
