Description

Originally published in 1964 under a pseudonym, Greenberg's book was a best-seller in its day. Upon the reissue, writer Lauren LeBlanc writes for the Atlantic says it is "a fearless coming-of-age novel about Deborah Blau, a midwestern Jewish teenage girl in the 1950s." Which isn't dissimilar to The Bell Jar. "I continue to take comfort in the power of Greenberg’s book—and others that I pressed into the hands of my friends as a teenager—to have said things I couldn’t say." LeBlanc adds.
