Mary McCarthy, long a star in the crown of American literature, focuses this memoir on eight formative, compelling years of her life, from age 13 to 21, from high school through college. In candid, often intimate detail, she reveals a surprising adolescence, exposing a girl at turns vulnerable, independent, dramatic, lonely, inquisitive, romantic, demonstrably bright, and uncommonly daring. Portraits of family, friends, classmates, teachers; recollections of amateur theatricals, snobberies of students and much more make this memoir continually captivating and difficult to put down. The binding has a fairly light 1" black mark on the page tops. The jacket has light wear at the spine ends and shelf wear at the bottom edge. 16 pages of photographs. Includes brief biographies of lesser-known figures. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
