Kin-Flicks Author:Lisa Alther An extraordinary first novel, funny with the touchmark of acute, aching, poignant reality. This is the most marvelously described teens, adolescent mores and attitudes, sex and sensibilities since Salinger took us on Holden Caulfield's journey. A delight, beautifully wirtten, moving, true. An ambitious, funny, lucid and unfailingly honest novel.
The social history of America in the third-Quarter fo the 20th century has been prepared in a mocking, funny, encyclopedic first novel. Everything is here - southern teen-age, New England intellectual, Vermont farmer, hippy counter-culture, radical feminist.
