Lawrence Block dips into the life of a smart, talented woman using seven days over ten years from 1963 to 1973. The book is set in New York City and a middle-class Jewish neighborhood in Buffalo, New York. Following Andrea Benstock's life will help you understand why the women's movement had such appeal in the '70's. A reviewer says Block has, "... created a wonderful work of “literary fiction” that is engrossing and never feels gimmicky." About the narrator, "Barbara Nevins Taylor is well suited to the material and delivers a solid reading."
