"This is the intricate tale of three generations of women whose lives have been shaped by the essential experience of all women, that of waiting - for love to grow stronger, for wars to end, for life to move ahead. In its richly woven texture, its movements through time and space, the novel introduces us to the unforgettable members of the Coleman family: Zoe, who returns home after years away to confront her brother Badger's break with reality - the result of taking too many drugs in Canada, where he fled to avoid the Vietnam War; June, Zoe's mother, who first suffered a deep estrangement from her husband when he returned from World War II; and Naomi, the grandmother, who fled the pogroms of Russia. From the House on the Road Motel to Badger's residence at the austere Heartland Clinic, from the plains of the Midwest to the swamps of Florida, three women confront men, madness, dreams, and ultimately one another."; Remainder; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
