Skirts is a novel about three highly intelligent young women in
New York City, coming of age in the early 1960s, when the drug culture
is just taking hold. Each has escaped the mores and habits of her parental
home, either by "running away" and setting up house in some arty tenement,
or just by participating in an alternative lifestyle while she lives with an
unaware parent in a palatial New York apartment. Each of the three
ultimately goes in a different direction: one discovers that what she
really wants is a fulfilling and prosperous marriage like her
mother's ought to have been – but the other two find themselves
seeking fulfillment either through art or professional success,
swimming against the tide of the society in which they live.
In a way, Skirts is a kind of "Sex And the City" for the early 60s
– the three young women haven't yet "found" themselves, but
through the action of the novel, it would seem as if they're
on their way.
