Pages for You, Paperback Book
5 out of 5 (4 ratings)

Description

Haunted by an unspoken passion, a narrator decides to write some pages, pages comprising the story of the beginning, the blossoming, and finally the ending of a young woman's most intense love affair. 'Each day a page, to show you that I am finding a story, the story of how we might have been together, once.

Of how we could be.' An unformed, innocent student in her first semester at university, Flannery Jansen initially encounters her lover in a local diner.

But her tentative overtures -- a look, a blush -- are dismissed and Flannery retreats, humiliated.

Future chance meetings on campus discourage Flannery even more, for Anne Arden is sophisticated and poised; in Flannery's eyes almost impossibly beautiful.

Until she realizes that Anne feels the same way about her. 'Like Turgenev or Katherine Mansfield, Sylvia Brownrigg understands that the inexperienced lover is a detective who doesn't know which clues matter ...mesmerising' Helen Dunmore, The Times 'Exuberant and wistful' Times Literary Supplement 'A candid, fresh and vivid novel' Sunday Telegraph

Pages for You is a vivid and passionate evocation of the rollercoaster ride of first love. For most of the novel, I was totally jealous of the young protagonist, Flannery, because all my crushes on older, well-read women during university remained sadly unrequited. By the end, suffice to say my envy had dissipated. A well-written and mildly sexy romance.

I just finished reading Pages For You and I am surprised I had never heard of it before. I mean, I understand there is still that stigma associated with the LGBT community and for that reason books with LGBT couples are not commonly read in high schools. However, with time that will change and I can definitely see thus becoming part of curriculum. Its storyline and character depth as well as the way it is written reminded me greatly of the classics I read in high school, like Catcher In the Rye and The Bell Jar. I believe Flannery and I would be great friends. get to know her by reading this great work of fiction by author Sylvia Brownrigg.
