Editorial Reviews

Review

“McCarthy has learned the difficult art of setting down everything as it might have happened without telling a single self-protective lie. . . . It has the still unusual quality of having been lived.” —The New Republic

“Miss McCarthy’s portrait of her heroine is an original and sensational one. . . . Equally striking, however, is her picture of the world in which that heroine moves. . . . She writes so well and has such sharp and fresh insight. . . . A deft satirical portrait of a girl-about-town.” —The New York Times

“Mary McCarthy is an exceptional social satirist, with a jackdaw eye and an infallible ear.” —Kirkus Reviews

About the Author

Mary McCarthy (1912–1989) was an American literary critic and author of more than two dozen books including the 1963 New York Times bestseller The Group. Born in Seattle, McCarthy studied at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, New York, and graduated in 1933. After moving to New York City, McCarthy became known for her incisive writing as a contributor to publications such as the Nation, the New Republic, and the New York Review of Books. Her debut novel, The Company She Keeps (1942), initiated her ascent to become one of the most celebrated writers of her generation, a reputation bolstered by the publication of her autobiography Memories of a Catholic Girlhood in 1957, as well as that of her now-classic novel The Group
