About this product
- DescriptionWhen a worldwide plague kills off most of England's male population, the highly conventional Mr. Gosling and his daughters begin to fulfill long-thwarted tendencies and desires. Gosling abandons his family for a life of lechery, leaving his daughters--who have never been permitted to learn self-reliance--to loot abandoned shops. Eventually, the Gosling girls find a place in a female-dominated agricultural commune...but their new life is threatened by their elders' prejudices about free love!
- Author BiographyJ.D. Beresford (1873-1947) was an English dramatist, journalist, and author. Besides Goslings (1913), his science fiction novels include The Hampdenshire Wonder (1911), about a super-genius child, Revolution (1921), What Dreams May Come... (1941), A Common Enemy (1942), and The Riddle of the Tower (1944, with Esme Wynne-Tyson), about a dystopian, hive-like society. Beresford was persecuted for his pacifism during WWI. His daughter Elisabeth was author of a series of children's books about The Wombles.
