Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

These two books by Bryant share similar themes: Ella Price's Journal (1972) and Miss Giardino (1978) both tell stories of women whose fates are changed by education late in their lives.

Format: Paperback
In 1973 I, as a re-entry woman, went to the community college portrayed in this book. I took a class with Dorothy Bryant, and thus, I read this book. It was almost me in those days, so of course I could relate to so much of it. I sat in the same rooms, watched the same students, walked the same campus. It is now decades later, and I am still thankful for that experience, this book, and especially for the talents, wisdom and kindness of its' author, Dorothy Bryant. I am so glad to see it still in print. READ IT!

Format: Library Binding
Thirty-four year old Ella Price is a wife, mother, and college student. Ella returns to college in search of herself or something that will give meaning to her life. She takes an English class from Dan Harkan, a professor who requires his students to keep a journal. The reader learns about Ella, her hopes, dreams, frustrations, and disappointments by reading her journal, a series of writings that is both humorous and revealing. Near the end of the semester, Ella writes in her journal, "I'm still the same neuroitc I always was. And my life is still a bad soap opera."
First published in 1972, Ella Price's Journal touches on some timeless subjects including marriage, divorce, parenting, and religion. Ella Price's Journal is a quick, enjoyable read.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A very realistic story about a housewife who begins college and is introduced to a new world of books and political awareness and becomes dissatisfied with her current life. She is initially enamored with the academic world and their contempt for middle-class America. But, she soon learns their hypocrisy is as bad as that which they condemn and that they face all the same problems as other Americans. While she accepts the positives of her new world, she also seeks something more.

Still, one of the most important books on a woman finding her voice and herself during the time of great change in this country.

Ella returns to college and questions everything she has believed in the past.

This is a great story about the women's movement in the 1970s. Notice how I didn't say feminist because I believe Ella Price was not a feminist. The novel, written as a class journal, is compelling. As she grows, the novel becomes more interesting. Well worth reading.
