Format: Kindle Edition
A fantastic book written in first person that reads like a rich memoir of growing up in Middle America in the 40's and 50's, moving to Grenwich Vilage and carousing with Beatnicks, falling into marriage and motherhood and ultimately becoming part of the quite radical feminist movement in NYC. What is particularly engaging about this book is the depth and nuances with which the idealism and folly of each of these aspects of history were "lived" through the experience of the protagonist. I highly recommend this book.

Format: Paperback
Well written, engaging novel about a young woman's coming of age during the 50s, with original insights into the female experience during the Beat movement in the Village, etc. The perspectives are at times iconoclastic; overall, this is a provocative, even enlightening work.
