HER MOTHER'S DAUGHTER.

Pan

£1.75

 

Marilyn,

Through sheer hard work and determination, Anastasia Dabrowski had found success. As a world-famous photo-journalist she had achieved an independent life under the alias Stacey Stevens - a name that revealed nothing of her Polish immigrant ancestry.

Now, nearing 50 and survivor of two marriages, she is determined to understand the legacy that binds her to the past: a legacy of grief, of women making bitter sacrifice for the sake of their mother's lives.

Only by reaching out through the mists of despair, can Stacey Stevens forge a new peace with her children and her past, and pay the price that true independence demands.

THE WOMEN'S ROOM

Sphere

£1.75

 

Marilyn,

The novel for every woman who ever though she knew herself, and for every man who ever thought he knew a woman...

The hauntingly powerful story of Mira Ward - a wife of the fifties who becomes a woman of the seventies. From the shallow excitements of suburban cocktail parties and casual affairs, through the varied nightmares of rape, madness and loneliness to the dawning awareness of the exhilaration of liberation, the experiences of Mira and her friends crystalize those of a generation of modern women.

This is perhaps the most important novel yet written about the realities of life experienced by today's women. It is certainly the most moving and compellingly readable - a classic of modern fiction that will establish itself as a landmark not only of literature but of our developing consciousness also.
