I Know What I'm Doing

(1964)
A novel by

 
 
The story concerns an English girl, just turning 20, who leaves a drab life in London and comes to New York. The unnamed girl speaks in her own person, and this almost conversational narrative is interrupted now and then by another, third-person voice which watches the action from a slightly different perspective. These two lines make an angle, as it were, in which the girl herself moves, like a chick between cupped hands. And the girl is, indeed, the contemporary chick, stripped down to the barest spiritual essentials.
