A critically accalimed first novel with people
and situations unique to the dawn of the "sexual revolution".
It part moving and sensitive, but largely comedic.
The New Yorker said "Ginny's sexual adventures and
misadventures are among the funniest ever recorded...
no other writer has yet synthesized the coming of age
in the sixties as well as Alther".
Harpers mag said "We are in the presence of a most
powerful and remarkable talent...a book so
continuously funny that its wisdom takes you
by surprise.

The actual ISBN on the book didn't work because this is a UK version of the book. The actual ISBN is 0-14-004410-8. Older paperback in pretty good shape.
