The lost classic that defined a generation – over a million copies sold
We are very excited to be reissuing Alix Kates Shulman’s Memoirs of an Ex-Prom Queen. First published in the 1970s, it is still shockingly fresh and relevant today.
Sasha Davis has everything a girl growing up in 1950s suburbia could want: beauty, intelligence and an all-star sports captain boyfriend.
But when she drops out of college to marry, Sasha realises her life has become a fearful countdown to her thirtieth birthday – the year when her beauty will have faded entirely, and life as she knows it will end. As Sasha begins to rebel against her perfect, conservative upbringing, she finds herself experiencing an awakening that might be her only chance of outrunning the aging process.
We’re looking for three feminist book groups to read and review this amazing book. It’ll be loved by fans of I Love Dick, My Year of Rest & Relaxation and The Awakening.
