Description

Set partly in London and partly in America, "Girl From the South" follows the fortunes of a small group of the young and the single - the children, in fact, of sixties swingers. They have, it seems, infinite opportunity, but are bedevilled by indecision, by the breadth of choice, by the inflexibility of tradition, by the consequences of their parents' careless marital history - and by being still dazzled by the nineteenth-century vision of the sublimity of romantic love. The men can't commit, the girls can't reconcile independence and maternity, the rules seem to be vanishing. And time, of course, is passing.show more
