Editorial Reviews

Review

"Sharply and stylishly written. Without sermonizing, Harris manages to write with intellect, insight and humor about the good, bad and ugly aspects of being a woman. While her focus is on women, she gives some well-thought time to the men who came of age during the period, tracking their development and proving herself an effective social commentator in the process.
"Jane, Lincky and Elly are by turns bold, insecure, determined, passionate, daring and unconventional. Through these women Harris examines sexuality, love, success and personal happiness." —Chicago Sun-Times

"Author Ruth Harris' rapier wit spices up a coming-of-age-in-the-sexist-'60s story. Funny, sad, vivid, and more than raunchy enough to satisfy the most ribald appetites. Harris seeks to enliven and entertain, and she does it in spades. --The Cleveland Plain-Dealer

"Ruth Harris has written a superb 'rags to riches' story. Harris create characters that are alive and familiar. These three women, Lincky, Jane and Elly, are like old friends, women we've all known. Their experiences, hopes and fears are universal.
"The heroines find themselves in the forefront of the feminist revolution. And yet like most modern women they, too, wonder if they will find the right man and or how to get rid of the wrong one. Each in their own way finds success at the top and a successful relationship. You'll love MODERN WOMEN." —West Coast Review of Books

"Upbeat, sassy. Harris' latest effort will engage fans and newcomers alike with its likable characters and enjoyable forays into the popular culture of the 1960s. The story centers on three women in the their twenties at the time of John F. Kennedy's assassination (a recurring motif) who dabble in the sexual, cultural and political freedoms that raucous era thrust upon the new generation.
"Filled with romantic sparks, fast action and interesting tidbits of social history." —Booklist

"Entertaining. Ruth Harris' breezy prose style, peppery dialogue and irreverent observations on the natures of men and women make MODERN WOMEN fun to read." —Dallas News
