Book: The friendly young ladies

Author: Mary Renault

Details: (c) 1944 Mary Renault; Pub Pantheon Books 1985; ISBN 0-394-73369-X

Verdict: The friendly young ladies is a rather sweet character piece.

Reasons for reading it: I've been intrigued for a while to read Renault's contemporary lesbian piece.

How it came into my hands: To my delight it was on the bargain table at The Strand when I was bingeing on bookshopping in New York last summer. When I got home, I had so many books that unpacking them was a bit daunting, and I managed to stash The friendly young ladies somewhere I couldn't find again easily. I only remembered where it was when I was packing up books to get them sent here.
