A 'puff' booklet for Ms Hurst's works, which were quite popular in her day... why herein Broun states LUMMOX more thrilling than Cather's A LOST LADY, and Nathan's PUPPET MASTER. Not having read any of the three, I can't comment on his assessment, but can say the inscription to H.D. comes as no surprise... both authors viewed, in their day, as progressive in terms of feminist & gay rights. "Two peas of the same pod", so to speak.
