Product description

Synopsis

Carol Shields has called this 'a remarkable and brave 1924 novel about being a house husband.' Preface by Karen Knox.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

'Oh, Lester, let me do that! The idea of your darning stockings! It's dreadful enough your having to do the housework!'
'Eva darned them a good many years,' he said with some warmth, 'and did the housework. Why shouldn't I?' He looked at her hard and went on, 'Do you know what you are saying to me...? You are telling me that you really think that home-making is a poor, mean, cheap job beneath the dignity of anybody who can do anything else.'...
Mattie shouted indignantly, 'Lester Knapp, how dare you say such a thing! I never dreamed of having such an awful idea...Home-making is the noblest work anybody can do!'
'Why pity me then?' asked Lester with a grin, drawing his needle in and out of the little stocking.
'Well but...' she said breathlessly, and was silent.
