This story of Polly Flint, born in 1898, tells her story over the course of most of the century and a period of great change. "Robinson Crusoe" is a touchstone throughout her life - does fiction do this any longer?

This is as much about the history of the novel and the evolution of women's writing and reading of it, as it is the story of one girl, from foundling, to lover, spinster, mad drunken encyclopedist, motherly teacher, and dotty old woman. Polly Flint takes Robinson Crusoe as her bible, shipwrecked as a woman in the early twentieth century, building and rebuilding her hut. If you love Virago Classics, this will make you very happy.
