Synopsis: With her bestselling first novel, Chute placed Egypt, Maine, on the literary map and introduced the world to the Bean clan. “If you care about fine writing, you owe it to yourself to read this book” (Boston Globe). Postscript by the Author.
From the Back Cover: There are families like the Beans all over America. They live on the wrong side of town in mobile homes strung with Christmas lights all year around. The women are often pregnant, the men drunk and just out of jail, and the children too numerous to count. In the 'Beans of Egypt', Maine, we meet the God-fearing Earlene Pomerleau and experience her obsession for the whole swarming Bean tribe. Therecousin Rubie, a boozer and a brawler, tall Aunt Roberta, the earth mother surrounded by countless, clinging babies, and Beal, sensitive, often gentle, but doomed by the violence within him.
