Now in a second revised edition, The Girl is a novel by fiery female writer Meridel le Sueur (1900-1996), who survived a blacklist during the McCarthy era of the 1950s and a rediscovery of her work in the 1970s. Her most recognized novel is The Girl, a story about a pregnant young woman struggling to survive the Great Depression after the sudden death of her lover. She finds the determination to continue with the help of female friends, in this strong saga of mutual support. Based on true stories related to the author by female survivors of the Depression, The Girl is a profound literary and feminist classic, now with a new introduction by English professor Linda Ray Pratt. Highly recommended.
