Synopses & Reviews
In self-contained stories that Marilyn French describes as "honest without cynicism, loving without sentimentality, angry without bitterness", a woman helps her elderly mother grow old and die -- only to have her come back as a ghost, to settle all that she left out in life. Alternately hilarious and heartbreaking, this episodic novel returns us to Broner's inimitable fictional world.
