Written between 1873 and 1884 but not published until 1903, a year after Butler’s death, this uninhibited satire savages Victorian bourgeois values. V. S. Pritchett said, “One thinks of it lying in Samuel Butler’s desk for thirty years, waiting to blow up the Victorian family and with it the whole great pillared and balustraded edifice of the Victorian novel.”; 16mo 6" - 7" tall .

Kirkus Review: ...(A) "psychological study of a selfish, ingrown old woman, who has to live through two hurricanes on the Rhode Island shore to learn that life demands human participation. La Farge has done a superb tour de force-it isn't really a novel, though it has the ingredients, and he has used the technique of Rumer Godden's Take Three Tenses.-the story is told as a fugue." ; 8vo .
