    Book details

Lulu Bett lives in a small town with her sister Ina and Ina's husband Dwight-a dentist who rules his household with self-righteous smugness. The unmarried Lulu has learned that she cannot question her role as chief cook, housekeeper, and gracious presence. But when Dwight's sophisticated brother Ninian comes to visit, Lulu finds in herself a surprising wit-and the boldness to accept his playful proposal of marriage.
Through her appealing, determined heroine, Zona Gale satirically dispatches a sheaf of the social assumptions of her day, from male supremacy to the security of marriage. First published in 1920, Miss Lulu Bett was immediately acclaimed, and went on to become one of two bestselling novels of the year. Together with four of Gale's short stories-including the O. Henry award-winning 'Bridal Pond'-Miss Lulu Bett reflects Gale's broad progressive interests and the fast-paced, affecting prose which made her one of the most popular writers of her time and a classic American storteller.
'A great book . . . the telling is almost incomparable' --Robert Benchley, 'The World
''Eloquent. . . . Miss Lulu Bett is without flaw' --'The Atlantic Monthly
''It has a narrowly limned beauty. . . . The book stands as a signal accomplishment in American letters' --'The New Republic'
