Overview

From the author of A CRAVINGA portrait of the artist as a young woman, coming of age in a tempestuous family, exploring love, choosing to follow the less travelled path."There's so much intelligence here and a search for truth... Miranda Geer knows early on that she is fated to be an artist...the narrative has absorbing scenes and character portraits...electrifying...acute turns of phrase bespeaking an artist's eye." — Publishers Weekly"In the heyday of Abstract Expressionism, a girl born to a failed scriptwriter and a frustrated would-be singer struggles to be an artist...a generous portrait of an artist responding to the demands of vision in love and painting. Miranda's aesthetic discoveries parallel her increasing insight into her fractious family." —The New York Times"casts a poetic glow" — The Pittsburgh Press"Not since A TREE GROWS IN BROOKLYN has a writer enticed readers into a character so successfully... There is an emotional pitch...and an intellectual challenge...." — The Jersey Journal"Filled with flowing language... should appeal to writers, artists, ...people interested in children who grow up coping...." — Grand Rapids Press
