When I was a Girl, I Used to Scream and Shout...
By Sharman MacDonald

"Sharman Macdonald recounts with sympathy and deliciously rude detail, the sexual misadventures and misconceptions of Fiona, growing up with her repressive mother and best friend Vari in 1950s Scotland. She shows how the girls' excitement and expectations atrophy, so that in their thirties they have become sober stereotypes of the modern woman." - Time Out
