    • Abstract:
      The article presents a criticism of Janet Flanner's 1926 novel "The Cubical City." Topics discussed include the way Flanner depicted the sexual behavior and personality of her protagonist, a single woman named Delia Poole, the sexual conservatism associated with women known as flappers in the 1920s, and brief details about the narration, portrayal of gender relations, and fictional representation of women's sexuality by the novel.
