ANN...BOLDLY CURIOUS ABOUT LIFE AND LOVE

Ann Carlin is surely one of the most astonishing heroines in recent fiction-a creature at once perverse and pitiful, innocent and depraved. The story of her relationship with Dave Pope gives meaning to their curious college days, when the rage was for new music, old cars and sex...

As sensitive as Fitzgerald and as outspoken as O'Hara, Charles Thompson's novel sets a new standard for literature about the Beat Generation.
