About This Item

New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1990. Alice Hoffman takes us to a typical suburban community in the typical suburban decade of the 1950's.... and then explores what happens when Nora Silk comes to town. Nora is an extraordinary person. Everyone in town is somehow touched by her.... In the mirror of her magnetism, people see themselves as never before and begin to ask themselves questions they had never asked.... finding answers they had never dared to imagine. A spotless book. Dust jacket illustration by Fred Marcellino.. Book Club Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Very Good.

Synopsis

Nora Silk doesn’t really fit in on Hemlock Street, where every house looks the same. She's divorced. She wears a charm bracelet and high heels and red toreador pants. And the way she raises her kids is a scandal. But as time passes, the neighbors start having second thoughts about Nora. The women’s apprehension evolves into admiration. The men’s lust evolves into awe. The children are drawn to her in ways they can't explain. And everyone on this little street in 1959 Long Island seems to sense the possibilities and perils of a different kind of future when they look at Nora Silk...This extraordinary novel by the author of The River King and Local Girls takes us back to a time when the exotic both terrified and intrigued us, and despite our most desperate attempts, our passions and secrets remained as stubbornly alive as the weeds in our well-trimmed lawns.
