"Isn't That Just Like a Man!" [and] "Oh, Well, You Know How Women Are!"
(c.1920, c.1919)·New York
by Rinehart, Mary Roberts | Cobb, Irvin S.
New York: George H. Doran Company. Very Good+ in Very Good dj. (c.1920, c.1919). Early printing. Hardcover. [nice clean copy, light shelfwear, slight bumping to spine ends and a couple of corners; jacket a little edgeworn, one small closed tear and associated creasing]. The "Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus" of its day, as two prominent authors of the time weigh in (in back-to-back format) on the foibles of their respective opposite sexes. Mrs. Rinehart opines that "as all women know, there are really no men at all. There are grown-up boys, and middle-aged boys, and elderly boys, and even sometimes very old boys. But the essential difference is simply exterior. Your man is always a boy." For Cobb's part, he speaks in favor of gender equality in the workplace -- sort of: "The salary she will take -- oh, yes -- but she arrogates to herself the sweet boon of weeping when things distress her, and, when things harass her, of going off into tantrums of temper which no man in authority, however patient, would tolerate on the part of another man serving under him." .
