Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Finally in paperback!

In this remarkable debut work from author Karen Stolz, readers follow the arc of a girl's life as she grows to womanhood. From crushes to surprise baby sisters to nail polish to a devastating death, Roxanne is our guide through a life that has moments of tenderness, poignancy, sorrow, and great humor, as well as some wonderful baking memories. A sumptuous novel--though like the best pie, tart in all the right places.

Synopsis:

In this enchanting first novel, Stolz creates a poignant and exquisitely written episodic tale of family, food, and love set in a small Texas town in the 1960s.

About the Author

Stolz is a graduate of the Iowa Writers' Workshop and was awarded a 1999 Fiction Fellowship from the Austin Writers' League/Texas Commission on the Arts.

Get a taste of life in a small town. Follow Roxanne's life story as she grows up. It's a pretty quick read, not fascinating in the way you can't put down, but pretty good.
