Elizabeth Benedict knows women. In Slow Dancing she answers all the questions about how it was to be a liberated, college-educated career woman in the seventies. In Beginner’s Book of Dreams, she sensitively gives us a girl growing to womanhood in the fifties and sixties, and her mother with her forties and fifties history. This is a young novelist of strong power.
