From the Publisher:

Illumination Night is the first book I ever read by Alice Hoffman. Was I in for a surprise! It is a lovely, uniquely imaginative story of an elderly woman, a young couple and boy giant on Martha's Vineyard. Illumination Night refers to a 4th of July tradition on the island. Hoffman's characters are so vulnerable, and believable, and memorable that I immediately went and found all of Hoffman's books. There is always a magical element in all of Hoffman's books that prompts us to look at life and people in a whole new way.
--Maureen O'Neal

From the Inside Flap:

touches...make this intelligent novel shine. Ms. Hoffman knows how to tell a story."
THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
Set on Martha's Vineyard, here is a stunning novel that brings that beautiful island to vivid life--a novel that weaves together the lives of a little boy, an elderly woman, a blond giant, a young couple, and a teenaged girl...lives of intense erotic longing, of quiet understanding, of willful determination. It is a novel of magic and mystery, and a literary event that confirms Alice Hoffman as one of our finest and most compelling writers.
