Book description
Mary Cadogan is well known as one of the foremost commentators on girls' fiction and popular culture. In this book, published to celebrate her eightieth birthday, she provides a wide-ranging, authoritative and entertaining look at girls' school stories and other period fiction. Among the authors given individual articles are Dorita Fairlie Bruce, Enid Blyton, Elinor M. Brent-Dyer, Elsie J. Oxenham, L.M. Montgomery, and Richmal Crompton, while her more general themes include secret societies, feminism, Girl Guides fiction, and story papers.
Mary's meticulous research and critical appraisal combine with her warm and witty style to make this a truly absorbing read. Learn what she considers the almost perfect girls' school story, where the Silent Three hid their robes, and why Amalgamated Press artists were supposed to show schoolgirls submerged to their armpits whenever swimming costumes were shown.
