Underground Woman: A Semi-Autobiographical Novel by Kay Boyle

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 40 min
Event Type: Interview Program Origin: KPFA

Erik Bauersfeld and Lee Jenkins of KPFA interview poet, author, and political activist, Kay Boyle, about her 1975 novel “The Underground Woman.” The novel, which is semi-autobiographical, follows the life of classics professor Athena’s experience being imprisoned for protesting the draft, as well as a later run-in with her daughter, who has joined a cult and tried to take over her mother’s house. An attempt that is thwarted when Athena gives ownership of the house to a third party. This is similar to the tact that Boyle herself had to take when her own child became involved with a cult during the 1960s.
