By Barbara Anderson
Twenty-nine years after it was published, VUP are proud to re-issue Barbara Anderson’s first novel.
It’s a new term at the girl’s high school and in the staffroom and classes life is beginning again. For Carmen, Sooze, Margot and the rest of Barbara Anderson’s wonderfully memorable characters, it’s a time to reflect on the often hilariously conflicting demands of lovers, supervisors, friends and enemies. Here is a novel whose razor-sharp dialogue, wit and compassion reveal a writer of prodigious gifts.
