Synopsis: Set in 1929, before the Crash, Paradise Farm probes the disintegration and rebirth of a wealthy Jewish family at a time when the New York art world was in ferment, women's roles were changing, the psychoanalytic movement was burgeoning-and Hitler's menace was recognized only by a prescient few.

From the Back Cover: "In this tale of bohemian life entre deux guerres, a woman artist finds a way to articulate the unspeakable. Spare and stirring-a wonderful novel." - Diane Wood Middlebrook, author of Anne Sexton: A Biography

"An intriguing portrait of the artist as a young woman of means and genius. Loosely basing her narrative on the life story of her mother, the distinguished modernist painter Ethel Schwabacher, Brenda Webster traces her heroine's evolution from dutiful art student to avant-garde innovator, at the same time offering incisive portraits of the haute-bourgeois Jewish intellectuals who inhabit 'Paradise Farm at the tumultuous end of the 1920s." - Sandra M. Gilbert, co-author of The Madwoman in the Attic: A Study of Women and the Literary Imagination in the Nineteenth Century

"Paradise Farm is one of those rare historical novels that also manages to be naturally and persuasively contemporary. It vividly evokes the life of East Coast artists and intellectuals toward the end of the 1920s, at a moment when modernism was in full bloom, psychoanalysis in its first great American vogue, and the shadow of the imminent stock market crash scarcely perceived. At the same time, Paradise Farm gives us the portrait of a young woman's coming of age as an artist that speaks powerfully to our own era." - Robert Alter, author of Pleasure of Reading in an Ideological Age

"Paradise Farm gives you the feel of a dysfunctional family in the late 1920s-a distant mysterious father, a sexually repressed mother, two incestuous siblings. The narrative intersects with the founding of a mental health center, whose only patient is an autistic child, and is played out against the broader international context of escalating anti-Semitism in fascist Germany. A stimulating read on every level." - Irvin D. Yalom, M.D., author of Lying on the Couch
