Letty Fox: Her Luck by Christina Stead

Letty Fox: Her Luck by Christina Stead. 1979 first Harvest/ Harcourt Brace paperback, 517 pages. Stead was an Australian writer, novelist, and teacher. Some considered her novels to be an example or early feminist work, though she rejected the term. According to Lost Ladies of Lit: "The Australian government refused to import Letty Fox: Her Luck by native Aussie Christina Stead (the talented and complicated author best known for The Man Who Loved Children) after this novel’s 1947 publication. It was declared “salacious” and “obscene,” and was even occasionally banned." It's the story of a young woman sampling all life has to offer.
