In this innovative historical survey, Annegret S. Ogden addresses the need for the modern housewife to adapt to the additional role of wage earner. By examining a variety of diaries, letters, domestic fiction, and household books of the past two centuries, as well as solid statistical and historical data, she seeks not only to uncover the motivations and origins of the typical American housewife, but also to discover an alternative life pattern that has characterized a virtually unrecognized minority of American women. These are the immigrant, black, and frontier women, as well as any other part-time homemakers, who long ago forged the survival tools that are needed by today's majority of working housewives. It is Ogden's contention that an understanding of the historical housewife, as well as her working counterpart, will light the way for those modern American housewives who must adapt their role as both homemaker and wage earner to the shifting complexities of contemporary American life.

The first edition of this very popular nineteenth century cookbook was published in 1839 as The American Housewife, later expanded to The Kitchen Directory and American Housewife and often republished as The American Housewife and Kitchen Directory. Author Anne Howe’s name did not appear on the title page until later editions published after this 1841 version. Her preface states that although she is not an Ude (French chef) or a Kitchiner (popular British cookbook author), she knows the culinary arts as “practiced by good American cooks.” Bemoaning the inadequate instructions and limited practical knowledge expressed in other cookbooks, she presents over 350 recipes from the simplest broths to the most delicate cakes and sweetmeats with efficient instructions and practical economy. In addition to her recipe collection, the book includes recipes on cookery for the sick and making perfumes, as well as sections on housewifery and carving that appear to be simply lifted from earlier works. This edition of The Kitchen Directory and American Housewife was reproduced by permission from the volume in the collection of the American Antiquarian Society, Worcester, Massachusetts. Founded in 1812 by Isaiah Thomas, a Revolutionary War patriot and successful printer and publisher, the Society is a

Amt für Mutmaßungen

Ein verhängnisvolles Ehedrama – blitzgescheit, hintergründig und berührend Einst waren sie jung und schön, trunken vor Glück und sorglosem Übermut. Auf den Rausch des Verliebens folgte das gemeinsame Reifen, sich Annähern und Entfernen, sie heirateten, bekamen ein Kind. Ihre Liebesbriefe versahen sie mit dem Absender »Amt für Mutmaßungen«, hatten immer mehr Fragen und weniger Gewissheiten. Denn ganz allmählich, kaum wahrnehmbar, begann sich etwas zu ändern – und plötzlich standen sie am Abgrund. Bestechend klarsichtig und wunderbar poetisch zeichnet Jenny Offill das Porträt einer jungen Frau in New York, deren Denken um alltägliche Freuden und Sorgen kreist, um Schlafmangel, Treue, die Liebe zu ihrem Mann und ihrer Tochter, sich aber auch davonmacht in die fernen Sphären der Raumfahrt, Meeresforschung und antiken Philosophie. Ein fein schwingendes Gedankenmobile, vergnüglich ausbalanciert mit Zitaten von Kafka, Keats, Einstein und Tipps für die Hausfrau im Jahr 1897.
