This book provides an analytical model for reading a large body of modernist works by women. The authors document the publication and reception history of E. H. Young's novels, make a significant contribution to the field of 'homeculture,' and show that the fictional embodiment of home in Young, Virginia Woolf, Elizabeth Bowen, Ivy Compton-Burnett, Lettice Cooper, E. M. Delafield, Stella Gibbons, Storm Jameson, and E. Arnot Robertson epitomizes the symbiosis between architecture and literature, or between the house and the novel.

First published c. 1904 in France, Snowdrops from a Curate's Garden is a hilarious and remarkably inventive collection of erotic prose and verse written by the influential libertine-mystic and magician Aleister Crowley. Sections of prose and verse are unified through a biographical frame narrative attributing them to a single author-poet-perpetrator. The first section, The Nameless Novel, was written primarily to amuse Crowley's convalescing wife, Rose Kelly. A scatological parody of erotic literature, it takes aim at the usual targets of libertine fiction and modern erotica but, at the same time, lampoons their (libertine fiction and erotica's) limitations and conventions through absurdity and hyperbole. The verse sections, which include black parodies of notable Victorian poets such as Robert Browning and Algernon Charles Swinburne, were added to extend the literary forms in Crowley's earlier erotic work, White Stains (1898), which is also available from Birchgrove Press.
