My Brilliant Career : Text Classics
Introduction by Jennifer Byrne
This is not a romance I have too often faced the music of life to the tune of hardship to waste time in snivelling and gushing over fancies and dreams; neither is it a novel, but simply a yarn a real yarn. Oh!
Written with all the high spirits of youth, My Brilliant Career is the unforgettable tale of Sybylla Melvin, a headstrong country girl passionate, endearing, stubborn, honest and her fraught journey from rags to riches to rags.
