Summary
"Process is a classic Bildungsroman and "a portrait of the artist as a young woman." Like James Joyce's Stephen Dedalus, Kerith Day is a sensitive youth, self-consciously in search of her own identity and place in the world. Observing with a keen and critical eye the dreary industrial landscape and the beaten-down inhabitants of her native Cincinnati, Ohio, Kerith determines to discover something better. Placing her faith in art and politics, she sets off for France, where workers and radicals are on the same side." "This novel captures the indignation and urge for independence that propelled the young Kay Boyle toward radical politics and literary experimentation. Aligned with the legendary circle of expatriate writers and artists in Paris in the 1920s, Boyle published some of her early poetry and fiction in the avant-garde little magazines, alongside the work of Joyce, Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound, Hart Crane, William Carlos Williams, and Ernest Hemingway. After the appearance of Boyle's first published novel in 1931, Katherine Anne Porter signaled her as one of the "most portentous" talents of her generation."--BOOK JACKET
