Books Received


Not That Kind of Girl, By Carlene Bauer
HarperCollins
304 pp/$26.99/Hardcover

According to the publishers:
Choosing virginity over safe sex, and the Bible over The Bonfire of the Vanities, author Carlene Bauer spent her youth and young adulthood as a seemingly protypical, extremely religious good girl. Noe in her memoir, Bauer ventures far beyond stereotypes and dogmas into richly orginial terrain, charting her journey to figure out the kind of woman she should become and the role her faith should play in that evolution. What emerges is a whip-smart, refreshingly comic account that will resonate with anyone who has ever wrestled with matters of belief, identity, or self-discovery.
