9781680031034: Wild Girls

Three college friends from the 50s blaze their own path in love and work, braving the stifling conventions of the age, and anticipating the social thaw that would arrive ten years later. These “wild girls” pay heavy penalties for living against the grain, but, over the years, rebound and re-set their course, drawing strength from their friendship. The novel follows them from an elite northeastern college, to Paris with Allen Ginsberg, to New York’s avant-garde scene in the early sixties, to a mansion in Newport, to the slopes of Zermatt, to Long Island’s Gold Coast, as it celebrates the nimbleness and vitality of women who defied an entire culture to forge their own journey.

"Wild Girls is a novel about a few women rebels who came of age in the 50s with the Beats in Paris, Allen Ginsberg (when he was still sleeping with girls), and a Yoko Ono-based character in early 60s New York. More importantly, Erica Abeel IS a 'Wild Girl'--she lived the life, these are her friends, and this is an insider's peek into that world."—Kevin Kwan, author of  Crazy Rich Asians

Praise for Abeel's Women Like Us:

 "Smart, snappy, and compulsively readable ...  Written with wit and perception."—Publishers Weekly

 "An old-fashioned good read."—New York Times Book Review

About the Author:

Erica Abeel, a college professor, former dancer, journalist and film critic, has published 5 books, including the novel Women Like Us, which was a Book-of-the-Month Club selection. Living in New York City and based in New York and Long Island, she loves to write about warrior women who lived against the grain before the upheavals of the 60s.

Review:

Young American women defying cultural expectations and inventing their own lives is one of my favorite subjects—and I am not alone. Erica Abeel's Wild Girls tells the delicious, page-turning story of three very different but equally thoughtful rebels from 1950s America, embarking on adventures that involve everyone from Allen Ginsburg to Yoko Ono . . . This book will bathe the reader in a time and place in which female self-invention was never more important, exhilarating, and challenging. With feminism a passionate concern of today's young female journalists and Hollywood actresses and directors, I can hardly think of a  timelier read.
—Sheila Weller, author of Girls Like Us: Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon

A very funny, rueful and accurate recapture of things past.  Erica Abeel's stylish prose delivers surprises and pleasurable shocks of recognition in every paragraph.” —Phillip Lopate, author of Portrait Inside My Head 

“Erica Abeel writes with the eye of Margaret Mead and the soul of Tolstoy. 
On stunning and electric prose she gives us captivating—thrillingly flawed—characters and we embrace them, even when it might be wiser to flee.  Along the way, she shows us the brilliance and devastation of love; the hidden geometry of complicated marriages; and the interwoven force fields of deep friendships.”
—Grace Dane Mazur, author of Hinges

“Erica Abeel writes with an insider's authority and great charm about her 
"wild girls," who come vividly to life in this intelligent, compelling novel.”
—Hilma Wolitzer, author of Summer Reading and Hearts

“WILD GIRLS is a novel about a few women rebels who came of age in the 50s with the Beats in Paris . . . and a Yoko Ono-based character in early 60s New York.  More importantly, Erica Abeel IS a ‘wild girl’— she lived the life, these are her friends, and this is an insider’s peek into that world."  
—Kevin Kwan, author of Crazy Rich Asians

“With WILD GIRLS, Erica Abeel tells a story very much in the tradition of 
Mary McCarthy, Rona Jaffe and yes, even Jacqueline Susann. What her smart and accessible novel shows is the underside of bohemianism: that it rarely has worked for women.  WILD GIRLS brings us females who long for personal freedom, but who must struggle for it against both the mainstream and the counter-culture.  This is the hidden story of the beats and the hipsters and it’s one worth telling.”
—Claudia Dreifus, journalist and author
