Product Description

From Library Journal

This rather odd 1970 Irish outing calls itself a "heroi-cyclic novel." Protagonist Evelyn Hillary O'Rooley, having trouble deciding on her/his gender, undertakes a series of tests while waiting at the airport for a flight. Still on the avant-garde side.

Brigid Brophy (1929-1995) was an acclaimed novelist, essayist, critic and campaigner. Her fiction included Hackenfeller's Ape (1953), The King of a Rainy Country (1956), Flesh (1962), The Finishing Touch (1963), The Snow Ball (1964), In Transit (1969), The Adventures of God in His Search for the Black Girl (1971) and Palace without Chairs (1978).

In 1954 she married the art historian Michael Levey (later the director of the British National Gallery from 1973-1987, knighted in 1981). The couple had one daughter, Kate. Brophy was a noted campaigner on several platforms, in particular her fight to establish an authors' Public Lending Right and her vice-presidency of the National Anti-Vivisection Society.
