Summary
Groult chronicles her growth through successive phases--as an obedient little girl, a troubled adolescent, a submissive wife--until finally becoming a liberated novelist. Here she recounts her choices, her friendships, her marriages, motherhood, and her fights for women's rights. At ninety-one years old, she concludes that she has been, and still is, a happy woman--lucky to have conquered her freedoms, one by one, paying for them, delighting in them, and loving them. Sexy, chatty, and full of shrewd insight, "My Escape" covers her years of struggle and success--as a daughter, lover, writer, wife, mother, and reluctant socialite--and draws a portrait of the role of French women in the twentieth century
