Wild Girls, the new novel by Erica Abeel ’58, will be published October 2016 by Texas Review Press. The novel follows three college friends from the 50s as they blaze their own path in love and work, braving the stifling conventions of the period. From Paris with Allen Ginsberg and the Beat poets, to New York’s avant-garde scene in the early 60s, and subsequent decades, these “wild girls” pay heavy penalties for living against the grain, but, over the years, rebound and re-set their course, drawing strength from their friendship.
