Journal Entry 1 by wingAnnimanniwing from Espoo, Uusimaa / Nyland Finland on Monday, May 14, 2012
From the back:

"Sally Jay Gorce is a woman with a mission. It's the 1950s, she's young, and she's in Paris. Having dyed her hair pink and vowed to go native in a way not even the natives can manage, she's busy getting drunk, bedding men, losing money, losing jewellery, and losing God knows what...

The Dud Avocado is the story of Sally Jay's rite of passage, a charming and hilarious novel that gained instant cult status on first publication and remains a timeless and inspiring portrait of a woman hellbent on living."

This was both delightful and funny and poignantly sad in a way. Very enjoyable, vividly written and interesting. Highly recommended!
