About the Author:

Janice Eidus: Janice Eidus has received numerous awards, including two O.Henry Prizes for her short stories, as well as a Redbook Prize, a Pushcart Prize, a National Writers Voice Residency Award, and a Money for Women/Barbara Deming Fellowship. Her work appears in such anthologies as The OxfordBook of Jewish Stories; Neurotica: Jewish Writers on Sex; and, Growing Up Female. Her four highly acclaimed books are The Celibacy Club, Vito Loves Geraldine, Urban Bliss, and Faithful Rebecca.

From Publishers Weekly:

In Eidus's confident fifth book, it's 1965, and 10-year-old cutie-pie Emma Rosen is navigating the rough seas of preadolescence and her temperamental Jewish family in a lower-middle-income Bronx housing project. Her often violent father, Leo, a self-righteous atheist who craves attention, dreamed of being a great novelist but instead owns a candy store; his casual flirtation with a sultry Jamaican widow threatens to blossom into a full-blown affair. Annette, Emma's migraine-plagued doormat of a mother, can barely remember her younger, prettier, idealistic self as she slaves away in the kitchen, the butt of Leo's tantrums. Emma, a budding poet who prays to the Virgin Mary, inspires intense animosity in her 13-year-old sister, May, which burns with the same red-hot intensity as May's infatuation for a classmate with princely blond good looks and manners very different from the Rosens. An old-fashioned coming-of-age tale, the book soon grows dark with crisis. Eidus (Faithful Rebecca) illuminates the inner lives of young girls on the cusp of womanhood and demonstrates abundant compassion for her often prickly characters. (Sept.)
