Alamo House: Women Without Men, Men Without Brains

by Sarah Bird

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
This hilarious novel of the women of Alamo House versus the SUKs (Sigma Upsilon Kappa Fraternity) at the University of Texas in Austin revolves around the narrator, Mary Jo, whose acerbic comments on life and love counterpoint her confusion about both, and her friendship with fat, naive Fayrene from Waco and worldly-wise party-girl Collie, who leads the other two through the ins and outs of relationships with men. In novels like this the tables have a way of turning, however, so it's the age-old story played against the war between the eccentrics and the boozer-jock stereotypes. However, the characters raise this novel above others like it. One wishes Bird's assessment of the library profession weren't so negative and stereotypic, but otherwise an amusing romp.Rosellen Brewer, Seaside Branch-Monterey Cty. Lib., Cal.
