These couragous folks have undertaken to republish fine 20th century English books that deserve our attention, most of them by women. Their catalog now contains seventy titles; they have been quite successful.
This New Year's Resolution is to acquire the Persephone books and to read them all. I own eight Persephone titles:
- The Making of a Marchioness, by Frances Hodgson Burnett (1901.) I've read this book and will review it soon.
- Consequences, by E M Delafield (1919)
- Alas, Poor Lady, by Rachel Ferguson (1937)
- Lady Rose and Mrs Memmary, by Ruby Ferguson (1937)
- Journal of Katherine Mansfield (1927)
- Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day, by Winifred Watson (1938)
- They Were Sisters, by Dorothy Whipple (1943)
- Betty Dorval, by Ethel Wilson (1947)
