'She's a queen of words' CAITLIN MORAN.
Down among the women. What a place to be!
In the Fifties, women were looked after by nice, breadwinning men: or so went the myth. Eighteen-year-old unmarried mother Scarlet, a lost child recovering from her first abortion, looks at the world with her friends and begins to see the truth.
An icily funny account of a dawning feminist sensibility in a world where the romantic ideal of love and domesticity ruled.
