Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In her novels Ellen Foster and A Virtuous Woman, Kaye Gibbons has compiled what one critic has called "a fictional oral history of female wishes [and] hopes." That tradition continues in A Cure for Dreams, a richly woven story that traces the bonds between four generations of Southern women through stories passed from mother to daughter to granddaughter. Gibbons shows us shrewd, resourceful women prevailing over hard times and heartless men and finding unexpected pleasures along the way: gossip, gambling, and the quiet satisfaction of knowing more than they're supposed to.

Synopsis:

A story that traces the bonds between four generations of resourceful Southern women through stories passed from one generation to another.

Gibbons was awarded the PEN/Revson fellowship for A Cure for Dreams, and has been the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship. She is also the author of the novel A Virtuous Woman. A writer-in-residence at the LIbrary of North Carolina State University, she lives with her three daughters in Raleigh.
