Lolly Willowes

Lolly Willowes (EPUB ebook)

By Warner, Sylvia Townsend

"This is the witty, eerie, tender but firm life history of a middle-class Englishwoman who politely declines to make the expected connection with the opposite sex and becomes a witch instead." - John Updike Forty-seven-year-old Lolly Willowes is a conventional maiden aunt, an unp...aid companion and babysitter to her brothers' children. After years of submission to her controlling family, she develops a longing for the countryside and dark, wild places that impels her to flee London for a remote village. Lolly soon discovers that her new neighbors are a coven of bohemian witches and eventually encounters Satan himself - a genial country gentleman who's ready to make a pact. The first-ever selection of the Book of the Month Club upon its 1926 publication, Lolly Willowes was a surprise international bestseller. This proto-feminist work has since been chosen as one of the Guardian's 100 Best Novels of All Time, and it remains a richly satirical novel that celebrates the joys of self-actualization. "Revolutionary ... a subtle demand for women's power over their own lives." - Alison Lurie "Remarkable ... pungent and satisfying." -Saturday Review
