"A novel of family life [which] tells the story of a young couple and their parents, of a family so wrapped up in the barbed wire of their blood relations that the movement of one tears into the other. The daughter is in flight to leave behind her childhood and her crazy parents. The crazy parents are trying to get away from each other, but after thirty years of creating their own particular brand of family madness they don't know how. In the middle of this is the daughter's husband. Like a man walking down a quiet street who falls through an open manhole and winds up in some kind of hell, he finds himself in the middle of this family. And all he remembers is the vision of this sweet, gorgeous, and passionate woman who said to him, 'I'm yours. You can do with me what you want,' and he married her, believing it would be true. The Night of the Weeping Women is an excruciating portrait of the quiet desperation that lurks behind placid suburban veneers, of the small cruelties and inextricable ties of domestic relations. Careening between an exuberant hilarity and a horrifying rendering of the dark beast that lies at the heart of this family, the book is funny, tragic, and above all moving."; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall; Signed by Author
