Ella Price's Journal: A Novel
This novel unfolds as a series of entries in the journal of a suburban housewife attending college for the first time at the age of thirty-five. Ella's growing consciousness begins to shake the foundations of her life, and she comes to the realization that she is irrevocably changed--and that to be true to herself, she must make painful choices.
First published in 1972, Ella Price's Journal is a deeply authentic literary rendering of a woman's struggle to give voice to what Betty Friedan in The Feminine Mystique called "the problem that has no name," and a novel that affirms the possibility of growth toward a richly intense and authentic life at any age.
