PASSIONATE PURSUIT OF ELUSIVE HAPPINESS
Down The Hall Book Club April pick is Two Serious Ladies by Jane Bowles > APRIL 20
"The passionate pursuit of elusive happiness is the major preoccupation and drama for the heroines of Two Serious Ladies, Bowles’s only novel, born of many years of writing and many more of worrying over her inability to do so. Few people have had more legendary writers block—Bowles spent decades agonizing over works she would never complete—which is, at least in part, why Two Serious Ladies is required reading when it comes to understanding the writer’s enigmatic and crooked world."
-- from "The Madness of Queen Jane" by Negar Azimi, The New Yorker
BONUS: John Waters talking about how much he likes the book.
