Lost Lady by Willa Cather

A Lost Lady by Willa Cather. 1980 Virago Modern Classic (c/r 1923), 178 pages. According to PBS: "Cather herself complained in a 1922 essay that “the novel, for a long while, has been over-furnished.” Intent on telling the truths of a particular time and place, she made her own prose as spare as the land about which she was writing, and became a pioneer in American fiction. A Lost Lady is considered one of Cather's best.

Condition: VG. Price sticker on back cover.

"But we will begin this story with a summer morning long ago, when Mrs. Forrester was still a young woman, and Sweet Water was a town of which great things were expected."
