A classic coming-of-age story. Greer, a bright, impressionalbe college freshman from a small town, meets Faith, a renowned and glamorous older woman--an encounter that changes the course of Greer's life. Faith is an icon of the feminist movement and Greer idolizes her--an adulation that eventually turns to disillusionment. In examinig what it means to be a feminist Wolitzer honors the private acts that have a direct and positive impact on indiviual lives. Wolitzer's wonderful novel reminds us of the fraught contexts and assumptions that weight the attainment and execution of female leadership.
