The GirlBook - 2006
This celebrated novel by one of the leading radical woman writers of the twentieth century is reissued in a format designed for the general reader. Written in 1939, first published in 1978 (by West End Press), The Girl explores the fate of a farm girl who moves to the "dark city" of St. Paul, Minnesota, where she struggles to survive the death of her lover, killed in a bank robbery, and to give birth to her daughter, her hope for a new generation.
"Meridel Le Sueur's work stands, urgent and unique, at that bloody crossroads where politics and culture meet."--Paul Lauter, Trinity College
