Am I the only person alive to have read Olive Higgins Prouty? I ordered four of her novels from bookfinder.com. Really terrific writer, completely forgotten today (the only books of hers to be filmed were Now, Voyager and Stella Dallas). She wrote really good “womens’ novels,” about relationships and society, and was rather bitter about motherhood and Mr. Right. Someone really should reissue some of her work!
Now, Voyager is one of my favorite movies and books, and she wrote four others in the “Vale family” series, White Fawn (1931), Lisa Vale (1938), Home Port (1947) and Fabia (1951). I’m reading them in order, and so far, White Fawn is very enjoyable.
Plus, they are all in 1940s/50s Dell paperback reprints, with the gaudiest trashy cover art!
