KIRKUS REVIEW

A 1989 novel, part of an autobiographical trilogy by a Norwegian author whose brooding empathy with her fledgling protagonist recalls the essentially similar fiction of Cora Sandel and Henry Handel Richardson. It surveys Inger Holm's progress following her school days through complex relationships with family, friends, and lovers, hesitant acceptance of her homosexuality, and the first stirrings of her passion to become a writer--with engaging intensity that is unfortunately fragmented by argumentative monotony.
