So when we came across this book, we had no idea it was as...shall we say..."crazy" as it turned out to be. Besides being having incredibly well fleshed out character(s?) and totally spot-on period dialogue, Woman's World itself was collaged from over 40,000 individual text fragments cut from women's magazines published in the early 1960's. Oh yeah, and it took what must have been five of the longest, blindingest, back-breakingest years of author Graham Rawle's life.
As for the writing? It's well worth reading, with vibrant characters, a noir shade (that could have been deepened, sure), and a most fascinating take on multiple personalities. ...Because as we all know, it's a woman's place in this world to bring elegance, organization, and a hint of cuckoo to any well rounded home.
