Escapade

Book - 1995
Rate this:
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.This new edition is enhanced by a thoughtful and appreciative critical afterword by Dorothy M. Scura that illuminates both the structure of the book and the beauty of its language while placing Scott within the continuum of feminist writers.
