Three college friends from the 50s blaze their own path in love and work, braving the stifling conventions of the age, and anticipating the social thaw that would arrive ten years later. These “wild girls” pay heavy penalties for living against the grain, but over the years rebound and re-set their course, drawing strength from their friendship. The novel follows them from an elite northeastern college, to Paris with Allen Ginsberg, to New York’s avant-garde scene in the early sixties, to a “cottage” in Newport, to the slopes of Zermatt, to Long Island’s Gold Coast, as it celebrates the nimbleness and nerve of women who defied an entire culture to invent their own journey.
