Joyce Carol Oates Review in NYRB

Joyce Carol Oates wrote a long-form review of "Becoming the Ex-Wife" and Parrott's 1929 "Ex-Wife" in the July 2023 issue of NYRB: "Marsha Gordon’s Becoming the Ex-Wife: The Unconventional Life and Forgotten Writings of Ursula Parrott is a thoroughly researched, sympathetic, but not uncritical portrait of a woman who achieved exceptional commercial success as a writer and who was, for a while, 'the most famous divorcée in the United States.'"
