Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Richie Palumbo, the most ordinary of men, gets lost one night in 1969 while driving with his family. He finds himself in Norumbega—a gorgeous, hidden town on the far edges of Bostons western suburbs. He sees a venerable old house and, without quite knowing why, decides that he must have it.  Richies wild dream sets his family on a forty-year odyssey in which they confront class and parental dreams, sex and spirituality, and the way hopes conflict with reality. Anthony Giardina's Norumbega Park is a brilliant, sensuous drama of suburban angst—a novel that mines the depths of desire and its abiding consequences.
