A rudderless girl finds herself at the flashpoint of a stumbling and dangerous counter-culture in the summer of 1969. A hauntingly precise investigation into how frighteningly mutable the inchoate self can be, and just how far that self will go to be seen and named, The Girls is a stunning debut from a brilliant new voice in American fiction.
