9780393332728: House Lights: A Novel

“Tantalizing ... captivating ... provocative.”―Booklist

Late in her twentieth year, Beatrice, who dreams of a life on the stage, is confronting a home life torn asunder. She mails a letter on the sly to her grandmother, a legendary actress long estranged from the family, sparking events that will change her life forever. Powerfully written and psychologically intricate, House Lights illuminates the corrosive power of family secrets and the redemptive struggle to find truth, forgiveness, and love.

Review:

A[n] excellent novel. -- The Washington Post, Carolyn See

Cohen has an uncommon talent for creating characters that live on in the memory. House Lights...brims with hope and regeneration. -- The Courier-Journal, Mary Welp

Cohen's captivating family drama thrums with a sensitive authenticity that is all the more provocative thanks to its poignant lyricism. -- Booklist, Carol Haggas

In this excellent novel...Cohen suggests that real love almost always runs counter to the conveniences of society. -- The Washington Post

Intelligent and searching...a coming-of-age novel that casts a distinctly female eye on the form, not asking how far it's possible to travel from one's original self so much as considering the possibility that we may never really leave our child selves behind...House Lights is artfully constructed. By virtue of their length, novels forgive undisciplined descriptive flights, but Cohen writes with the scrupulousness of someone fashioning a short story, in which even the smallest details must bear their weight of significance. -- The New York Times Book Review

Simply - gorgeous. It's rare to find a novel that so elevates itself in the end, that achieves an emotional resolution without a contrived tidiness and with a narrative power that seems inevitable but not predictable. By novel's end, Cohen has given us a very real story that honors both of these epically flawed characters - and our own flawed need to love. -- The Los Angeles Times Book Review

Simply gorgeous. It's rare to find a novel that so elevates itself. -- Los Angeles Book Times Book Review, Tara Ison

This latest novel from Cohen is a hit. -- Library Journal
