Commencement

In clear and lucid prose J. Courtney Sullivan gives us the story of four young women as they commence to live their separate but intertwined lives after Smith College. Each woman faces her own future, but none can move forward without the love and support of the others. While the premise may sound familiar, the author’s ease at distinguishing the disparate voices and personalities of her four main characters, her willingness to tackle topics like motherhood, feminism, lesbianism, abuse, prostitution, and genuine, unsentimental friendship without forced or false drama leaves a lasting impression.
