Overview

Million Copy New York Times bestseller!
"Fiction at its best!" —New Woman magazine



Three modern women—and the men in their lives. The right men. The wrong men. The maybe men.

Jane Gresch: Her delicious revenge on her lying, cheating, thieving ex makes her rich and famous, but then what?

Lincky Desmond: Smart, beautiful and hard working, she marries Mr. Right—but risks it all for Mr. Oh-so-wrong.

Elly McGrath: When her husband dumps her for another, younger woman, she doesn't get mad. She gets even.
Owen Casals: He is handsome, horny, and magnetic. Everyone knows it—and so does he.

"Author Ruth Harris' rapier wit spices up a coming-of-age-in-the-sexist-'60s story. FUNNY, SAD, VIVID, and more than raunchy enough to satisfy the most ribald appetites. Harris seeks to enliven and entertain, and she does it in spades." —Cleveland Plain-Dealer

"Glory be! Excellent. This is the story of today's women." —Los Angeles Times


Ruth Harris is "brilliant, trenchant, chic and ultra-sophisticated, a writer who has all the intellect of Mary McCarthy, all the insight of Joan Didion." —Fort Worth Star-Telegram

"Excellent! Thoroughly delightful!" —Los Angeles Times

"Ruth Harris has written A SUPERB 'RAGS TO RICHES' STORY. Harris creates characters that are alive and familiar. These three women, Lincky, Jane and Elly, are like old friends, women we've all known. Their experiences, hopes and fears are universal and, yet, like most modern women they, too, wonder if they will find the right man and or how to get rid of the wrong one. Each in their own way finds success at the top and a successful relationship. You'll love MODERN WOMEN." —West Coast Review of Books

"Bestsellers like Decades, Husbands And Lovers and Love And Money have established Ruth Harris as one of the frankest, most stylish, and most compelling voices in contemporary fiction." —Chicago Sun-Times

"SPRIGHTLY AND REPLETE WITH INTERESTING PERSONALITIES. Explores the impact the sexual revolution and women's liberation had on the professional and romantic lives of female characters and the men in their lives. Invokes the music, bestsellers, news headlines and cultural changes of the period." —Dallas Times-Herald

"ENTERTAINING. RUTH HARRIS' BREEZY PROSE STYLE, PEPPERY DIALOGUE AND IRREVERENT OBSERVATIONS ON THE NATURES OF MEN AND WOMEN MAKE MODERN WOMEN FUN TO READ."
—Dallas News

"THE STORY OF THE EMANCIPATION OF TODAY'S WOMEN. HARRIS HAS CAPTURED THE MOOD, THE FLAVOR AND THE EXCITEMENT OF THE 60's AND 70's BEAUTIFULLY." —Phoenix Republic

"FRESH AND READABLE. Chapters contain nuggets of nostalgia that are guaranteed to trigger memories you'd swear were buried forever. The characters are complex yet familiar, as are the changes they and the world are going through. You can draw parallels to the friends and sisters who also made their way through three difficult decades for women and emerged all the stronger." —Orlando Sentinel

MODERN WOMEN was originally published in hard cover and paperback by St. Martin's Press.
