Old Maids' Club by Israel Zangwill

Genres for this book
Mathematics vs. poetry: Brainy and beautiful 17-year-old Lillie, determined to never marry, begins an Old Maids' Club, while patient young Lord Silverdale advises, observes, and writes appropriate poetry. Candidates for membership must be young, beautiful (and pledged to remain so), and have rejected at least one offer of marriage. The often humorous stories these young women share make up the bulk of the tale. (Summary by TriciaG)
