Poor Cow based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
This book is incredibly good. The back cover, on the version I have, begins its synopsis of the story with "Meet Joy" and that is exactly what happens -- you meet Joy, a single Mom in 1960s England. She is an incredibly real person. She is basically happy and good, but at the same time, living in near squalour and carrying on in an inappropriate manner with several low-class men. The range of emotions Joy and I experienced throughout this short novel was almost boundless. This is excellent writing.
