A surprising quote from the "misogynist" Lewis
- Just noticed this, to my surprise, while looking for something else.
"I have finished PRECIOUS BANE" [Mary Webb, 1924] "and think I have enjoyed
it more than any novel since the Bronte's. Why do women write such good
novels. Men's novels, except Scott, seem to me on the same level as womens'
[sic] poetry." Letter to Arthur Greeves, June 22, 1930
