My Mortal Enemy, Paperback / softback Book

My Mortal Enemy Paperback / softback

Part of the Virago Modern Classics series

Paperback / softback

Description

People can be lovers and enemies at the same time. We were...'Through the eyes of a young girl, Nellie, we view the life of Myra, a legend in the Southern town where both were born.

Myra has romantically abandoned the luxury she was born into to elope with the impoverished Oswald Henshawe.

Twenty-five years later, Nellie is dazzled when she meets them living in the elegant poverty of an apartment frequented by singers, actors, poets - in the heart of the artistic community of old New York.

But this shabby gentility gives way to real poverty in a jerrybuilt West Coast hotel, and the high purpose of Myra's life - love itself - is revealed to be the enemy within.

A finely-wrought study of the great rewards and punishments love brings, MY MORTAL ENEMY is an exquisite example of Willa Cather's art.
