About this title

Synopsis:

1990, First Edition, Hardcover with dust jacket, 211 pages

From Publishers Weekly:

Set in northern California, this sympathetic but slow-moving first novel traces the struggles of teenaged Lisa Sandham, torn between her divorced parents. Lisa's mother, Elisabeth, petulant and controlling, is accustomed to the limelight--she acts in summer stock and light opera, and plays the cello. She coaches Lisa to tell lawyers that she doesn't wish to live with her father, a pilot. Bewildered and anxious, Lisa does as she's told, her subsequent guilt exacerbated when her father accuses her of betraying him. Rivalry complicates Lisa and Elisabeth's relationship when they attend a fancy-dress ball given during an annual local Vintage Festival. There Lisa attracts the attention of her mother's boyfriend David, just back from Saudi Arabia, who begins a halfhearted flirtation with the girl. Lisa's unhappiness emerges in repetitive imagery of fists, both actual and metaphorical; e.g., "a.fist inside her punching out against her stomach and rib cage." Latiolais's tendency to explore the minutiae of Lisa's feelings results in a narrative that is stiflingly overexplicated and occasionally precious.
