SUMMARY Rich Rewards The Penguin contemporary American fiction series FREE DOWNLOAD ç Rich Rewards The Penguin contemporary American fiction series REVIEW ☆ MUABANBATDONGSAN.CO Ð Alice Adams E but soon it is Agatha's friends the Houston family who take up most of Daphne's attenti This is my first foray into Alice Adams We scavenged her entire oeuvre and I am interested enough in her writing to keep going This really is a window into the past specifically San Francisco in the 1980 s as seen through the eyes of a 40 year old woman It s uite fascinating and really sad It s a window into the mind of a woman who is frightened a lot of everything It s a window into the mind of a woman who doesn t understand that things just happen in the world and they are not directly related to her I was disappointed to be the only reviewer of this book because I really want to hear what others thought of it The 1970 s was a time of great independence for women but you can see how wobbly so many are The characters in this book are the kind of women on whose backs the current generation of women stand and for that reason this book is fascinating to read This is women s cultural history its triumphs and its horrorsI did not read the Kindle Edition mine is a first edition hardback published in 1980

SUMMARY Rich Rewards The Penguin contemporary American fiction series FREE DOWNLOAD ç Rich Rewards The Penguin contemporary American fiction series REVIEW ☆ MUABANBATDONGSAN.CO Ð Alice Adams Beautiful sophisticated a bit world weary Daphne Matthiessen flees New York city for char An obvious precursor to Bridget Jones herself probably a latter version of Jane Austen s Emma our heroine Daphne Matthiessen is both a spitfire a wallflower A sexual creature she perambulates great Western cities always in thirst for immediate affection always in want of true love Rich Rewards reads like an early version of Sex and the City Also TALES of the City the ins and outs of adult love taking place mostly in San FranciscoAlice Adams is a revelation Her Daphne is a character so well constructed that solely the faulty ending deserves demerits from this memorably rich overall experience
