Interesting for a few of the stories — Carmen Callil's, for example, for its brief description of the influence of Frost in May on the creation of the Virago Modern Classics series, and Germaine Greer because, well, simply because it's Germaine Greer — but overall the stories were simply too short and tended toward the superficial.

Book description
The mere mention of 'convent girls' is enough to elicit a welter of responses. And stories abound, from the hilarious to the sombre. In this brave, witty, often scathing collection of personal accounts, these amazing women talk about what most affected their early lives: from spirituality to sexuality, this truly revealing collaboration both devastates and affirms the myth of the convent girl.
