Group Description

Sofa Girls

"A piece of furniture also called a couch or Davenport."

"'I have a big problem,' says Baroness Susan Greenfield, perched on her black leather sofa in her Bond-style penthouse apartment. 'I love eating, but I hate cooking. I can hardly boil an egg.'"

"Joyce Carol Oates lowers herself on to an overstuffed monster of a sofa as if she or the sofa might break. Lean of cheek and luminous of gaze, she looks like Emily Dickinson’s less substantial sister — an elegant wraith trapped in the clumpy Victoriana of a Kensington hotel."

"Feeling her breath grow short, Lucy gradually slowed down. Eventually, she came to a complete halt in a shadowed alley, dark as the passage to Hell. She crumpled to the ground in exhaustion, and outrage at her feebleness welled over her. Slipping off a shoe, she massaged her troubled foot. `Lucy, Lucy, Lucy... when are you going to learn? Never walk anywhere without decent shoes.'"
