The Puzzleheaded Girl: Text Classics

Christina Stead, Fiona Wright

I hate and despise business and anything to do with making money.‘

Do you think it’s wrong?’

It is the enemy of art.‘

Eighteen-year-old Honor Lawrence is out of place at the bank where she works. When she refuses to accept a promotion, despite her obvious poverty, her mentor, Augustus Debrett, doesn’t quite know what to make of it, or of her. Honor is an enigma:and she leaves confusion and uneasiness in her wake.

In The Puzzleheaded Girl, made up of four thematically linked novellas, Stead’s unsurpassable skills of observation and social critique are on full display.
