The Unpredictable Adventure
A Comedy of Woman’s Independence

Claire Myers Spotswood Owens
Edited by Miriam Kalman Harris

Paper $19.95    |    978-0-8156-2583-4    |    1993

A fantasy adventure well ahead of its time, The Unpredictable Adventure satirises contemporary cultural norms and demonstrates the hazards awaiting a woman who dares to think and act in defiance of the gender roles assigned her. Considered too risque and therefore banned by the New York Public Library, the Los Angeles Times described it as reminiscent of Pilgrim’s Progress but more instructive than most manuals about what a young girl ought to know.
