The ex-prom queen of the title is Sasha Davis, a rebellious Midwestern girl who becomes one of the few women in her high school class to make it east for college. In grad school, she marries a fellow student, then trades school for clerical work. Trapped in a loveless union, Sasha has affairs, divorces ... meets a new love, marries him, has two children and finds this second, more "l;modern" union as difficult, in its own way, as her first. The book made a big splash when it was first published in 1969.... -- Entertainment Weekly

I've read some of the very critical or snarky or disinterested reviews by contemporary readers and I was shocked by them. I guess those readers wouldn't understand the context of 19th century novels any better than they understand Memoirs of an Ex-Prom Queen but at least they would understand that they were reading about a time and social reality different from their own. It's sad to see them talk about a book that seems to have been assigned reading but for which they have no context.
