The Country Girls Trilogy and Epilogue is an absolutely engaging saga that is, thematically, about opposites - opposite dispositions and opposite views of life, the survivor versus the ungovernable romantic. It charts unflinchingly the pattern of life, for women, from the high spirits of youth to the chill of middle age, from hope to despair. It is both painful and hilarious.

Edna O'Brien is the internationally-acclaimed author of 18 books including Down by the River, The House of Splendid Isolation, Mother Ireland, The Country Girls Trilogy, and A Fanatic Heart (all available from Plume). Born and raised in Ireland, she lives in London.Review:
Three novels by Edna O'brien that follow the lives of friends Kate and Baba from their school days and strict Roman Catholic upbringing in the Irish countryside to their disillusioned adulthood and failed marriages in London. The trilogy consists of The Country Girls (1960), The Lonely Girl (1962), and Girls in Their Married Bliss (1964). In 1986, the three novels with an epilogue were published in one volume as The Country Girls Trilogy and Epilogue. The trilogy concerns women enmeshed in their sexuality and almost inevitably destroyed by their dependence on men. Because of graphic sexual content and frank treatment of women's attitudes toward sexuality, the novels, and six of the author's subsequent works, were banned in Ireland. -- The Merriam-Webster Encylopedia of Literature
