The Feminine Middlebrow Novel, 1920s to 1950s

Class, Domesticity, and Bohemianism

Nicola Humble

  • Rehabilitates the concept of the middlebrow in understanding the women's writing of this period.
  • Studies this literature in the context of a wide range of other culturally significant discourses.
  • Covers the period from the 1920s to the 1950s - a broader range than the usual studies of the inter-war period.
