Summary
"Abigail Ulman's debut is an unflinching exploration of the fragile line between childhood and the adult world. Ulman grounds the stories, set on three different continents, with three stories about a charasmatic film-studies major trying to navigate her mid-twenties and the trecherous dating scene in San Francisco. Together Ulman's characters tell the story of all stages of becoming a woman: their collective longing to have the power that maturity can bring and their confusion and disappointment when they finally attain it. Evocative and acutely observed, set mainly San Francisco, about the reality of being a girl today, which manage to be at once mischievous, dignified, and self-deprecating, as well as disturbingly and darkly realistic"--
