The Narrow Land

1950: late summer season on Cape Cod. Michael, a ten-year-old boy, is spending the summer with Richie and his glamorous but troubled mother. Left to their own devices, the boys meet a couple living nearby – the artists Jo and Edward Hopper – and an unlikely friendship is forged.

A novel of loneliness and regret, the legacy of World War II and the ever-changing concept of the American Dream.
