9781885983077: The Dead of the House

A teenage girl’s coming-of-age in the Midwest in the 1940s about which Tillie Olsen wrote, “Wondrous, a true American classic . . . the timeless magic which is art.”

Review:

The Dead of the House was the first and only novel to be published by the late Hannah Green. Originally issued in 1972, it won lavish praise from critics and readers alike. Yet the novel, which took the author almost 20 years to write, went out of print for almost another two decades, until it was reissued in 1996. Today its virtues are no less evident. Green's lyricism transforms the fairly mundane fabric of her childhood--spent in Ohio and on the Lake Michigan shore--into exquisite, elaborately-worked prose.

About the Author:

When Hannah Green died, the New York Times wrote that she had written one book, The Dead of the House, "so perfect" that she could hardly bring herself to write another. In fact her Little Saint was published posthumously.
