Diane Hamilton comes of age in a world peopled by troubled women. Not that these are weak women, but they are women who have tried to face life down and failed. Nerves is a novel of generations of women--mother, daughter, aunt, friend of the family. Diane is the strength we all have in adolescence and the fear we felt of growing up female and defeated. It is rare to find a book that explores the tension this creates between mother and daughter.--Marilyn Webb Keywords:BLANCHE BOYD AMERICAN LITERATURE CONTEMPORARY FICTION NERVES WOMENS STUDIES FEMINISM COMING OF AGE
