Description

Meet Ginny Babcock - the forerunner to BRIDGET JONESIt's the 1950's and 60's in Hullsport, Tennessee and Ginny Babcock is coming of age.

Bouncing from one identity to the other, she adopts the values, politics, lifestyles and even sexual orientation of each new partner she finds. In this wise, funny and ultimately heartbreaking story, Lisa Alther explores the limited roles offered to women in this period - from cheerleader to motorcycle moll, bulldyke to madonna - each embodying important truths about the aspirations of the culture that created them. Honest, wise, funny and tragic by turns this is a remarkable novel in a class of its own.
