Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"A woman aspiring to a contemplative life faces innumerable obstacles-cultural, financial, sexual, and metaphysical-that stand between her and the freedom to live as she desires"-- Provided by publisher.
"In "a strangely ageless world somewhere between Emily Dickinson and David Lynch" (Blake Butler), a cleaning woman at a museum of art nurtures aspirations to do more than simply dust the paintings around her. She dreams of having the liberty to explore them in writing, and so must find a way to win herself the time and security to use her mind. She escapes her lot by marrying a rich man, but having gained a husband, a house, high society, and a maid, she finds that her new life of privilege is no less constrained. Not only has she taken up different forms of time-consuming labor--social and erotic--but she is now, however passively, forcing other women to clean up after her. Perhaps another and more drastic solution is necessary?"--Amazon.
