A novel about Catholic girls poised - hilariously- on the brink of going all the way, Virgins recalls in aching detail what it was like to be an 18-year-old Catholic high school senior...in the '50s. This book contains the rules and regimen, hijinks and longing of that time.
Two best friends from high school, Peggy Morrison and Constance Masters, reunite in Washington and continue their indecent behavior. One becomes a Capitol Hill gossip columnist and the other is a prize-winning journalist, and both exploit their feminine wiles to get what they want.
"Narration drips with ?????"
When murder strikes a small-time hood in Boston, street-smart reporter Sally Ellenberg and blue-blooded Jack Aiken plunge into a deadly world of conspiracy and behavior-control technology that may reach as high as the White House.
From the international bestselling author of Virgins comes this hilarious take on the sexual politics and high seriousness of the Kennedy years. A young White House reporter's evolution from personal ambition to public spirit is brilliantly set against a background of advancing civil rights and the first stirrings of American involvement in Vietnam.
