This 60's classic caused quite a stir in its day, my older sisters probably passed it furtively around their circle of friends after they finished with Lady Chatterly's Lover. It's a gritty snapshot of the lives and loves of a 60's young working class woman (back when the working class actually worked) while the middle and upper class demimonde were consumed with "Swinging London".

The 1967 Ken Loach film from this novel still isn't available in the US on DVD, so you'll need to wait if you want to see what all the fuss was about.

Nell Dunn's technique reminds me of some episodic pieces I've read on-line. Each chapter is stark and sharp. We learn about the gritty reality of life for young girls in the 1960s who didn't have time or money to be Mods or intellectuals protesting the social inequalities that surrounded them.

Joy makes many wrong choices in love and life. What struck me the most is that she keeps on going. She has a good heart and a dreamer's view on life: always looking ahead or envisioning some small detail to brighten up her life. These details range from a dressing table between two curtained windows to a layette in Spanish lace she plans for a baby should she get preggers again.

I'd recommend this book for anyone wanting a window into what it may have been like in 1960s England. Dunn was a Chelsea heiress who went to live in South London or thereabouts when she started her writing career. I think her observations in that enviornment helped give this book the authentic-like details.

Wonderfully evocative short novel set in 60s London, and telling the story of 22 year old Joy. With her husband imprisoned shortly after her baby's birth, Joy must cope as best she can. Living with her aunt, an intense affair with another man - and assignations with many more- work in bars and modelling...the one constant in Joy's life is her adored son, the descriptions of whom are perhaps the most vivid part of Dunn's writing. Very enjoyable read.

Is Joy, the main character, a pathetic, short-sighted loser or a passionate, loving mother, or both? I had trouble deciding. This is the joy of the book. (No pun intended!) You never know what you'll find in the next paragraph--Joy's poor choice of male companionship is frustrating for the reader, yet understandable given her need for affection. Her relationship with her son Jonny is chronicled over a couple of years and is incredibly touching; her intense feelings for Jonny, which could easily have been resentment given Joy's youth, were the highlight of the book for me.
