Admirers of I Never Promised You a Rose Garden (published under the pseudonym Hannah Green) and the recent novel In This Sign will find themselves on familiar ground with this powerful, moving new book of fiction.
Beginning with the novella-length story – an excruciatingly suspenseful narrative of an adolescent hired hand and his paranoiac surrogate father – and continuing through stories about the thirst for experience among the young, the envy and loneliness of the old, and always concerned with the eternal crises of the human condition, Joanne Greenberg’s stunning collection of twelve stories further confirms her rank among the very best of our writers of fiction.
