Five men are shipwrecked on an island which is home to five winged women. Claimed and maimed by the men, can the angels reclaim their nature and survive the modern world? A classic work of feminist science-fiction.
Inez Haynes Irwin (1873–1970) was an American feminist author, journalist, member of the National Women's Party, and president of the Authors Guild. Many of her works were published under her former name Inez Haynes Gillmore. She wrote over 40 books and was active in the suffragist movement in the early 1900s. Irwin was a "rebellious and daring woman", but referred to herself as "the most timid of created beings". She died at the age of 97.
Irwin was a close friend of the American feminist writer Mary MacLane, who included a colorful personality portrait of Irwin in her newspaper articles in the Butte, Montana newspapers in 1910.
