Reviews

Young American women defying cultural expectations and inventing their own lives is one of my favorite subjects--and I am not alone. Erica Abeel's Wild Girls tells the delicious, page-turning story of three very different but equally thoughtful rebels from 1950s America, embarking on adventures that involve everyone from Allen Ginsburg to Yoko Ono. . . . This book will bathe the reader in a time and place in which female self-invention was never more important, exhilarating, and challenging. With feminism a passionate concern of today's young female journalists, Hollywood actresses, and directors, I can hardly think of a timelier read.
--Sheila Weller, author of Girls Like Us: Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon
