This book was a HUGE bestseller when it came out decades ago. I read it then and enjoyed it tremendously. I read it again last night and have to say if any of you haven't read it, you should, it's a great book.

It was marketed as some kind of racy sex novel about Vassar women, but it wasn't really that kind of book at all. I know a lot of people who bought it thinking it was something it wasn't and they were disappointed because the sex in it was not quite as hot as they'd been told.

I had forgotten what a good book it is. I'm glad I read it again.

On the other hand, I tried reading some old short novels in a collection that included Faulkner and Conrad and some other people and they haven't held up at all. Dated in that earnest leftwing way books used to be.
