Ex-Wife by Ursula Parrott

Staff Pick

Ursula Parrott was at least 50 years ahead of her time—maybe we still haven't caught up with her. Originally published in 1929, this novel tells the story of Patricia, a flapper and working woman who careens into affairs and partying after her husband abandons her. Some of the delightful conversations between Patricia and her best friend could be taken verbatim from Sex and the City or Sally Rooney, but the novel is also sprinkled with fascinating details about life in 1920s Manhattan. It will make you want to put on a dashing Chanel frock and sip crème de menthe cocktails in a smoky speakeasy.
