Abstract:

It's 1972 in Vancouver, a city crossed between love-in hip and forest-corp square. Frances Nelson escapes her small-town background to attend first-year university in the big city. U Girl tells the story of a woman's struggle to be taken seriously - to be equal to men despite her sexual attraction to them, and to dislodge accepted narratives of gender and class in the institution of the university during the "free love" era. This novel takes us through sexual experimentation, drugs, jobs, meditating on Wreck Beach, sailing up through Desolation Sound, and studying at the University of British Columbia.
