Gone is gone, or, The story of a man who wanted to do housework by Wanda Gág( Book )

29 editions published between 1935 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"... addresses an age-old question between couples--who works harder? This long-out-of-print children's book is based on a charming Bohemian tale recited to Wanda Gag when she was a child, and is now once again available to enchant audiences of all ages. The tale's sly peasant humor and conversational style combined with Gag's expressive black-and-white illustrations made the book an instant classic. In this delightful story we meet Fritzl, who lives on a farm with his wife Liesi and their baby. Fritzl works hard in the fields every day. Liesi works hard all day, too, but Fritzl somehow feels that he works harder. When he complains about how hard he works and how easy Liesi has it, doing nothing but "putter and potter about the house a bit," Liesi calls his bluff and suggests they trade places. The hilarious outcomes of Fritzl's calamitous day at home are portrayed in Gag's singular illustrations. In the end Fritzl admits that Liesi's work is "none too easy" and begs to return to his fields and not do housework another day. "Well then, " says Liesi, "if that's how it is, we surely can live in peace and happiness for ever and ever."--Amazon

"In this volume, [author] presents a fascinating account of Gág's life and printmaking art, exploring how Gág's work reflects not only her Minnesota childhood but her immigrant roots and bohemian life. Relying on excerpts from Gág's expressive diaries and letters, [author] fleshes out a portrait of the artist. With extraordinary candor, Gág describes her intimate personal thoughts and experiences, as well as her friendships and encounters with notable artists ... Throughout her writings Gág reflects on her career, on the restrictions placed on women, and on her sexual desires."--Back cover
