In this delightful and witty novel, Laura Willowes rebels against pressure to be the perfect 'maiden aunt'. Not interested in men or the rushed life of London, Laura is forced to move there from her beloved countryside after the death of her father. Her relatives like dead things; they treasure stuffed animals and parade possible husbands ('suitable and likely undertakers', as Laura calls them) in front of Miss Willowes. Finally, Laura strikes out for the countryside on her own, selling her soul to an affable but rather simple-minded devil, and becomes a witch. First written in the 1920s, this book is timely and entertaining. It was the first selection of the Book-of-the-Month Club in 1926.

Product Description:

In "Lolly Willowes," Sylvia Townsend Warner tells of an aging spinster's struggle to break way from her controlling family--a classic story that she treats with cool feminist intelligence, while adding a dimension of the supernatural and strange. Warner is one of the outstanding and indispensable mavericks of twentieth-century literature, a writer to set beside Djuna Barnes and Jane Bowles, with a subversive genius that anticipates the fantastic flights of such contemporaries as Angela Carter and Jeanette Winterson.

Review:

"Lolly Willowes is a treasure; profound, crisp, and brilliant, an allegory to enchant even the reader with little patience for allegory, a fantasy firmly and illuminatingly located in the very dailiness of life..." -- Boston Sunday Globe

"A skillfully told morality tale." -- New York Times Book Review
