Book Description University of Georgia Press, United States, 1994. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 204 x 135 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. When it first appeared in 1926, The Hard-Boiled Virgin was hailed by novelist James Branch Cabell as the most brilliant, the most candid, the most civilized, and most profound book yet written by any American woman. It is a semiautobiographical novel about Atlantan Katharine Faraday, who, after numerous anguishing relations with men, chooses a career and independence over marriage and motherhood.Though somewhat avant garde, with its impressionistic air, absence of dialogue, and evocations of Virginia Woolf, The Hard-Boiled Virgin posed enough of a threat to middle class attitudes toward women to be banned in Boston. Intending her novel to undermine the white, tradition-bound, upper-class Atlanta society into which she was born, Frances Newman commented that she discovered that she was going to write a novel about a girl who began by believing every thing her family and her teachers said to her, and who ended by disbelieving most of those things.
