(From the publisher):
The novel, set in 1978, introduces us to the beguiling Frederica Hatch. Born and raised in the dormitory of a small womens' college, and chafing under the care of the most annoyingly evenhanded parental team in the history of civilization, Frederica is starting to feel that her life is stiflingly snug.
Into this cozy world comes Miss Laura Lee French, a wannabe former Rockette and the new dorm mother at the college where Frederica's parents teach and live. Laura Lee proves to be the enthralling and glamorous antithesis of the Hatches, whose passion for liberal political causes is all-consuming: even Frederica's Barbie dolls have been anatomically corrected.
