'Like male novelists of the 19th century, Richard North Patterson actually looks at the world through a woman's eyes. He tells us the story of a girl born into a derived identity, and her path toward who she is and what she wants' Gloria Steinem.
'A snapshot of America at a pivotal moment in history, and a beautifully written coming-of-age novel' Lady Antonia Fraser.
'A stunning tour de force by one of my favorite novelists. This coming-of-age story electrifies with the authenticity of the Sixties - the sex, politics, language, mores and music ... Richard North Patterson, always brilliant, is better than ever' Linda Fairstein.
'An extraordinary novel - profound, emotionally involving and totally addictive. This may be Richard North Patterson's best work: surprising and different, yet with the same ability to penetrate the minds of others - especially women, which is a rare gift' Stephen Fry.
