The lucky number for the Classics Club Spin #7 has been announced:
I’ll be reading Two Serious Ladies by Jane Bowles, which was published in 1943. I’m really excited for this one, as I find the dynamic between the unusual Bowles and her husband, equally-eccentric yet more well-known author Paul Bowles, most interesting. I’m also happy to add another title to my stack for #readwomen2014.
“Eccentric, adventurous Christina Goering meets the anxious but equally enterprising Mrs. Copperfield at a party.
Two serious ladies who want to live outside of themselves, they go in search of salvation: Mrs. Copperfield visits Panama with her husband, where she finds solace among the women who live and work in its brothels; while Miss Goering becomes involved with various men. At the end the two women meet again, each changed by her experience.”
