The Girls - Emma Cline

For some reason - probably due to venal coverdesign - I expected this to be some feelgood / chicklit easy read.

It was no such thing, at least not in the conventional sense of those terms.

In the purest sense, however : Clever literature certainly makes me feel good, and chicks are at the core of everything here, so..! 

The style and the plot (a female-angled rewriting of the Manson murders) (probably extremely different from Tarantino's upcoming film) feel like they come from a younger cousin of Donna Tartt's. Brilliant!
