"Christina and Frieda are two staid women who want to break out but end up breaking down in Jane Bowles' bizarre and marvellous 1943 novel. Christina Goering is a wealthy spinster in pursuit of sainthood who ends up as a high-class call-girl, while Frieda Copperfield leaves her dull husband and heads for Panama where she falls in love with a prostitute. Written with biting wit and cool compassion, Two Serious Ladies is a bittersweet celebration of female freedom that has been hailed as a landmark in twenitieth-century literature."--PUBLISHER
