Landscape For A Good Woman, Paperback / softback Book

Landscape For A Good Woman Paperback / softback

Part of the Virago classic non-fiction series

Paperback / softback

Description

This book is about lives lived out on the borderlands, lives for which the central interpretative devices of the culture don't quite work.

It has a childhood at its centre - my childhood, a personal past - and it is about the disruption of that fifties childhood by the one my mother had lived out before me, and the stories she told about it.'Intricate and inspiring, this unusual book uses autobiographical elements to depict a mother and her daughter and two working-class childhoods (Burnley in the 1920s, South London in the 1950s) and to find a place for their stories in history and politics, in psychoanalysis and feminism. 'Provocative and quite dazzling in its ambitions. . . Beautifully written, intellectually compelling' Judith Walkowitz
