Mazo de la Roche: The Hidden Life






Publisher:  Oxford University Press, Incorporated
Summary: Mazo de la Roche leaped to prominence as one of the most successful writers of the 20th century when the first novel in her Whiteoaks of Jalna series won the Atlantic Monthly prize in 1927. The award was hailed not only as a triumph for de la Roche but as marking the coming of age of Canadian literature. In this insightful biography, Joan Givner recovers the hidden life of Mazo de la Roche, revealing her genius for p...roducing undemanding yet titillating narratives that grew out of an adolescent daydream. Givner argues that although critics balked at the Gothic excesses of de la Roche's plots and the sexually bizarre adventures of her characters--which they saw as products of the feverish imagination of an unmarried woman with little experience--her fictions were, indeed, firmly rooted in her own experience. This work will appeal to all the many Jalna fan worldwide, and to lovers of biographies.

Givner, Joan is the author of Mazo de la Roche: The Hidden Life, published under ISBN 9780195407051 and 0195407059. Three Mazo de la Roche: The Hidden Life textbooks are available for sale on ValoreBooks.com, one used from the cheapest price of $3.94, or buy new starting at $20.50.
