Becoming the Ex-Wife: The Unconventional Life and Forgotten Writings of Ursula Parrott (Book)
Title: Becoming the Ex-Wife: The Unconventional Life and Forgotten Writings of Ursula Parrott
Author: Marsha Gordon
Abstract: Credited with popularizing the label "ex-wife" in 1929, Ursula Parrott wrote provocatively about divorcées, career women, single mothers, work-life balance, and a host of new challenges facing modern women. Her best sellers, Hollywood film deals, marriages and divorces, and run-ins with the law made her a household name. Part biography, part cultural history, Becoming the Ex-Wife establishes Parrott's rightful place in twentieth-century American culture, uncovering her neglected work and keen insights into American women's lives during a period of immense social change.
