In a steam-filled diner in a college town, 17-year-old Flannery Jansen meets a remote, brilliant older woman who soon becomes her idol. A bittersweet, sentimental education, "Pages for You" confirms Sylvia Brownrigg as "one of the most exuberantly agile minds among younger American writers" (Dan Cryer, "Newsday").
From the Publisher:
Seventeen-year-old Flannery Jansen develops a lusty obsession for a female graduate student teacher named Anne Arden, and by chance ends up in one of her classes, but as the two become closer and share more than Baudelaire, Flannery learns more about Anne than she ever wanted to.Seventeen-year-old Flannery Jansen develops a lusty obsession for a female graduate student teacher named Anne Arden, and by chance ends up in one of her classes, but as the two become closer and share more than Baudelaire, Flannery learns more about Anne than she ever wanted to.

Winner of a 2002 Lambda Literary Award

In a steam-filled diner in a college towm, Flannery Jansen catches sight of something more beautiful than she's ever seen: a graduate student, reading. The seventeen-year-old, new to evrything around her—college, the East Coast, bodies of literature, and the sexual flurries of student life—is shocked by her desire to follow this wherever it will take her. When Flannery finds herself enrolled in a class with remote, brilliant older woman, she is intimidated at first, but gradually becomes Anne Arden's student—Baudelaire, lipstick colors, or how to travel with a lover—Flannery proves an eager pupil, until one day learns more about Anne than she ever wanted to know.
Annotation:
Flannery Jansen is a small-town teenager who wishes she knew more about life and finds a willing mentor in a woman who is a teacher and graduate student at the local college.

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
[A]n affectingly slender story....A valentine that perfectly captures love's power to isolate the lovers from the rest of the world--and, in the end, from each other." 02/01/2001

San Francisco Chronicle Book Review
"Poignant but never saccharine, PAGES FOR YOU captures the grand gestures and petty humiliations, the ecstasies and embarrassments of first love." - Katharine Mieszkowski 04/08/2001

Bookforum
"Brownrigg deftly evokes that exultant moment of love at first sight...." - Kera Bolonik Spring 2001

Times Literary Supplement
"At its best, PAGES FOR YOU finds in its undeniable solipsism the tenor of reverie, and rediscovers the fugitive sense of the conditional. By the end, and quite to my surprise, I found that both Flannery and this meditation on lost chances had achieved a style at once exuberant and wistful, that lingered on in the mind with unexpected tenacity." - Sarah Churchwell 04/13/2001
