Meet Ginny Babcock - the forerunner to BRIDGET JONES
It's the 1950's and 60's in Hullsport, Tennessee and Ginny Babcock is coming of age.
Bouncing from one identity to the other, she adopts the values, politics, lifestyles and even sexual orientation of each new partner she finds. In this wise, funny and ultimately heartbreaking story, Lisa Alther explores the limited roles offered to women in this period - from cheerleader to motorcycle moll, bulldyke to madonna - each embodying important truths about the aspirations of the culture that created them.

Honest, wise, funny and tragic by turns this is a remarkable novel in a class of its own.

MEDIA REVIEWS
An ambitious, funny, lucid and unfailingly honest novel ... No other writer has yet synthesised (the coming of age in the 60's) as well as Ms Alther has * THE NEW YORKER *
A strong, salty, original talent ... It made me wonder what Tom Jones would be like written now * DORIS LESSING *
Dazzling talent ... brilliant, compelling ... wildly ribaldly funny * PUBLISHERS WEEKLY *
Orginally published in 1976 and re-released as a Virago Classic, Lisa Alther's Kinflicks remains remarkably fresh and provides the perfect read for a plane ride into another time zone. The hilarious odyssey of Ginny Babcock, a Southern peach gone rotten, * Cherry Smyth, AMAZON.CO.UK REVIEW *
