Anthropology of an American Girl
Leslie’s childhood friend Hilary Hamann’s novel Anthropology of an American Girl accompanied us on the trip and I’ve been working through it. A little Proustian for my taste- capturing the protagonist’s thoughts as they happen… but still I find myself reading 10 page chunks practically every day… If you are my generation, born in the 1960s, then an interesting read that captures the times very nicely. Hamann has all sort of clever observations about "people I knew."
