9780060977023: The New Girls

The New Girls is a resonant, engrossing novel about five girls during their formative prep-school years in the tumultuous mid-sixties. Into their reality of first-class trips to Europe, resort vacations, and deb parties enter the Vietnam War, the women's movement, and the sexual revolution. As the old traditions collide with the new society, the girls lose their innocence, develop a social conscience, and discover their sexuality -- blossoming into women shaped by their turbulent times.

About the Author:

Beth Gutcheon is the critically acclaimed author of eight previous novels: The New Girls, Still Missing, Domestic Pleasures, Saying Grace, Five Fortunes, More Than You Know, Leeway Cottage, and Good-bye and Amen. She is the writer of several film scripts, including the Academy-Award nominee The Children of Theatre Street. She lives in New York City.

Review:

“A gifted storyteller...her characters are intelligent, brave, and witty...human and real.” (Susan Isaacs, New York Times Book Review)

“It’s funny without sacrificing intelligence, intelligent without being pretentious. It’s all-around good reading.” (Boston Globe)

“Gutcheon has an impeccable fix on time, place, and native customs — and...pathos of a vanished youth.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“This is the story of those crucial relationships and of a harrowing loss of innocence.” (Library Journal)

“The author moves in and knows the world about which she writes. Good entertaining reading.” (Pensacola News)
