SISTER GOLDEN HAIR.
Edition: Advance Reading Copy (trade paperback format. )
Portland, OR: Tin House Books, (2014). First edition - A coming of age story set in Virginia in the early 1970s. "When Jesse's family moves to Roanoke, Virginia, she's twelve years old and already mindful of the schism between innocence and femininity, the gap between childhood and the world of adults. Her father, a former pastor, cycles through spiritual disciplines as quickly as he cycles through jobs. Her mother is chronically dissatisfied, glumly fetishizing the Kennedys and anyone else who symbolizes status and wealth. . . Her neighbor tans on the front lawn and tells tales of her married lover; her classmate playacts being a Bunny at Hugh Hefner's Playboy Club. . It's a terrifying time--in the shadow of Manson and the hangover from the idealistic sixties--when alienation overtakes liberation." 327 pp.
