The Unpossessed by Tess Slesinger
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This 1934 novel stands as the first depiction of radical chic in fiction. Slesinger (1905-1945) follows a group of Greenwich Village intellectuals engaged in founding a magazine. The novel raises questions still relevant today: Is marriage a viable institution? Should one bear children in hard times? Does sexuality undermine activism? And what is the political responsibility of intellectuals? "The Village Voice" calls "The Unpossessed" "sophisticated...full of cutting observations and over-eager images; satiric, then ecstatic, alternating social criticism with displays of sexual and intellectual coquetry."
