No matter how hard she tries, Ellen Burns will never be Scarlett O'Hara. As a little girl in South Carolina, she prefers playing Tarzan to playing Jane. As a teenage beauty queen she spikes her Cokes with spirits of ammonia and baffles her elders with Freedom Riding sympathies. As a young woman in the 1960s and '70s, she hypnotizes her way to Harvard, finds herself as a lesbian, then very nearly loses herself to booze and shamans. The Revolution of Little Girls is both funny and heartfelt, and a completely original and captivating work.
"Funny...lively, and wry, insightful and poignant. [A] psychedelic and unsettling journey into a Southern heart of darkness."--The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
