Most widely held works by Evelyn Scott

21 editions published between 1929 and 1996 in English and held by 820 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The novelist, Scott, broke with the mores of the traditional Southern upper class family in which she was brought up and for the rest of her life embraced the bohemian life style.

Escapade by Evelyn Scott( Book )

21 editions published between 1923 and 2004 in 4 languages and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1913, at the age of nineteen, Elsie Dunn - later to be known as Evelyn Scott - turned her back on the genteel Southern world she was born into and ran off to Brazil with a married Tulane University dean more than twice her age. Living in tropical exile under assumed names, the couple produced a son and endured a grueling series of hardships and failures that would provide Evelyn Scott with the raw material for a singular work of fictionalized autobiography. That work, published in 1923 amid expressions of mingled outrage and admiration from the critical establishment, was Escapade
