Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A hauntingly beautiful, wickedly funny, and devastatingly moving novel of innocence and dreams that announces the arrival of a major new talent to the literary scene

In the attic room at 26 Waifer Avenue, identical twins Georgia and Bessi Hunter share nectarines and forge their identities, while escaping from the sadness and danger that inhabit the floors below. But innocence lasts for only so long—and dreams, no matter how vivid and powerful, cannot slow the relentless incursion of the real world.

Synopsis:

Sharing childhood dreams and their struggles for survival from the attic bedroom of their traumatized parents' home, identical twins Georgia and Bessi Hunter and their two sisters endeavor to forge identities in spite of the realities of impending adulthood. A first novel. Winner of the Orange Award for New Writers. Reprint. 15,000 first printing.
