Mary Agnes Keely is finally leaving home, ditching her Irish Catholic upbringing, her widowed mother, and the emptiness of small-town life for the chaos of Manhattan. Her journey will alter many lives: Lydia, whose crazed husband is confined at Shay Acres; Stanley, the dreaming commercial artist who brings his eager body to her virginal bed; and a ragtag array of artists and poets. Choosing her own way, Mary Agnes taps hidden resources in a gradual process of creative self-discovery realizing triumphantly that "it was no great sin to be, at last, alone."Stylistically original, laced with Howard's characteristic irony and sharp wit, Bridgeport Bus illustrates why "Maureen Howard belongs on any list of the best American novelist practicing today" (Robie Maccauley, Chicago Sun-Times).
