Reviews

America, 1959-change is sweeping the country. Richard Nixon vs. John F. Kennedy; Charlie van der Linden vs. Frank Renzo. Charlie is a career diplomat for the British government; Frank is a New York newspaper reporter trying to recover his reputation in the post-McCarthy era. Both are covering the upcoming election, but it is Charlie's wife, Mary, who creates the unintended bond between them. Mary loves Charlie and their children, but then she meets Frank and together they discover a depth of passion neither believed possible. Unfortunately, following true love is not always the true path. Steven Crossley's narration borders on brilliant; he slips easily among British, American, Scottish, and Russian accents, and his articulation of women is remarkably effective. His pacing keeps the story entertaining, and his understated reading of the love affair makes the action all the more poignant. Highly recommended for fiction collections.-Jodi L. Israel, MLS, Jamaica Plain, MA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

"A beautiful and moving love story" * Mail on Sunday * "A novel about adultery, jazz and alcohol-full of good things, of the intensity of initially thwarted desire, of the atmosphere of a new era coming alive, of the poignancy of things past rings precisely true - suave and fluent" * Sunday Times * "Both tense and affection... At the end one releases the breath one has been unconsciously holding, tribe to a writer of considerable skill and ambition. A modern epic" -- Anita Brookner * Spectator * "On Green Dolphin Street is one of the most heart-shakingly accurate depictions of how it feels to be female and in love that I have ever read" -- Julie Myerson * Observer * "A real page turner...superbly done...another winner" * Sunday Telegraph *
