FRIENDLY YOUNG LADIES


FRIENDLY YOUNG LADIES

MARY RENAULT    Book Number: 87574    Product format: Paperback

Sheltered, naïve and just 18, Elsie leaves the stifling environment of her parents' home in Cornwall to seek out her sister Leo who had run away nine years earlier. She finds Leo sharing a houseboat and a bed with the beautiful, fair-haired Helen. While Elsie's arrival seems innocent enough, it is the first of a series of events that will turn Helen and Leo's contented life inside out. Soon a randy young doctor is chasing after all three women at once, a neighbourly friendship begins to show an erotic tinge, and long-quiet ghosts from Leo's past begin to surface. Before long no one is sure just who feels what for whom. Set in 1937 it is a romantic comedy of Bloomsbury bohemia with light-hearted, charming and free spirited characters. The witty and stylish story offers exceptional insight into the world of upcoming writers and artists in 1930s London, chronicling their rejection of society's established sexual mores. Facsimile reprint of the 1944 original by the popular author. US paperback with tiny remainder dot. 293pp.
