From the Publisher:

Miss MacIntosh, My Darling is written with oceanic music moving at many levels of consciousness and perception; but the toughly fibred realistic fabric is always there, in the happenings of the narrative, the humor, the precise details, the definitions of the characters. Miss MacIntosh herself, who hails from What Cheer, Iowa, and seems downright and normal, with an incorruptible sense of humor and the desire to put an end to phantoms; Catherine Cartwheel, the opium lady, a recluse who is shut away in a great New England seaside house and entertains imaginary guests; Mr. Spitzer, the lawyer, musical composer and mystical space traveler, a gentle man, wholly unsure of himself and of reality; his twin brother Peron, the gay and raffish gambler and virtuoso in the world of sports; Cousin Hannah, the horsewoman, balloonist, mountain-climber and militant Boston feminist, known as Al Hamad through all the seraglios of the East; Titus Bonebreaker of Chicago, wild man of God dreaming of a heavenly crown; the very efficient Christian hangman, Mr. Weed of the Wabash River Valley; a featherweight champion who meets his equal in a graveyard -- these are a few who live with phantasmagorical vividness in the pages of Miss MacIntosh, My Darling.

Author Bio
Marguerite Young
A descendant of Brigham Young, Marguerite Young graduated from Butler University in Indiana with a B.A. in English and French, and in 1936 she received an M.A. from the University of Chicago; eventually, she also earned a Ph.D. at the University of Iowa. After living for a time in the Midwest, teaching at various universities, she moved to New York, where she taught at the New School for Social Research. Young wrote fiction, poetry, a non-fiction "epic" about the utopian community of New Harmony, Indiana, and a biography of socialist Eugene V. Debs. She finished her monumental 1,200-page work of fiction, MISS MACINTOSH MY DARLING in 1963; it was published in 1965 and immediately proclaimed "a master work" by the New York Times Book Review, "a massive achievement" by Jerzy Kozinsky, and "the Great American Novel" by a surprising number of critics.
