The Truth About Lorin Jones

The Truth About Lorin Jones - Alison Lurie Read this aloud to my husband when we were dating. I'd read while he cooked. We both enjoyed it, but it wasn't the best book ever. Polly is a little irritating and we both kept groaning over the heavy-handed feminism. I think we liked it more as an experience than either of us would have if we read it to ourselves.
