The Type-Writer Girl

by Grant Allen

This book tells the story of Juliet Appleton. Juliet is a well-read young woman who becomes a type-writer girl when her father passes away. She loves greek lit, big words, anarchists, smoking, her bicycle, and her dog. A Howard Zinn precursor, her motto is: Be audacious! Be audacious! Be audacious! And she is, even though she finds herself in a plot as familiar and as enjoyable as any Jane Austen novel. But don't expect a Jane Austen ending. This is romance and morality for older folk.
