Alice Munro's first collection of linked stories traces Del Jordan's uneasy passage through adolescence. Her mother believes that sometime soon women will stop seeing themselves in terms of men. Del, humiliated by her body's insistent desires and trying desperately to fall in love, isn't so sure. Munro's eye for the telling detail makes Lives of Girls and Women among the most vivid accounts of adolescence in Canadian literature.
