Book:An Unfinished Woman

An Unfinished Woman: A Memoir

Lillian Hellman

Caustic, brilliant, uncompromising, accomplished, Lillian Hellman, one writer noted, can “take the tops off bottles with her teeth”. Her career as a playwright began in 1938 with The Children’s Hour, the first of seven plays that would bring her international attention and praise. Thirty years later, Hellman unleashed her peerless wit and candor on the subject she knew best: herself. An Unfinished Woman is a rich, surprising, emotionally charged portrait of a bygone world—and of an independent-minded woman coming into her own.
