Sinopsis: A NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK OF THE YEAR
"Elaborate and playful...Honest and deeply felt....Here is the Quindlen wit, the sharp eye for the details of class and manners, [and] the ardent reading of domestic lives."
THE NEW YORK TIMES
It is the 1960s, in suburban New York City. Maggie and her family, are in the thrall of her powerful grandfather Jack Scanlan. In the summer of her twelfth year, Maggie is despertately trying to master the object lessons her grandfather fills her head with. But there is too much going on to concentrate. Everything at home is in upheaval, her grandfather is changing, and Maggie is unsure if what she wants is worth having....
From the Paperback edition.
"An intelligent, highly entertaining novel laced with acute perceptions about the nature of day-to-day family life" (Anne Tyler New York Times Book Review)
"Quindlen is at her best writing about the dislocations of growing up, the blows a child does not see coming" ( Time)
"The characters are quirky and vividly drawn ... The writing is lovely, and shows humour and quiet insight ... Quindlen is an intelligent and imaginative writer" ( Boston Globe)
"Elaborate and playful... Honest and deeply felt... the sharp eye for details of class and manners, the ardent reading of domestic lives." ( New York Times)
"Anna Quindlen's first novel is about an experience that is the same for everyone and different for us all: the time when we suddenly see our family with an outsider's eye and begin the separation that marks our growing up." ( Washington Post)
