A humorous journey from '80s Manhattan to the wild side of small-town living, from bestselling author Lisa Alther
Clea Shawn is exhausted by her life: her globe-trotting career as a travel photographer, her successful husband's numerous liaisons, and the unrequited love she feels for her best friend, Elke. She decides to get away from her Manhattan townhouse—and a city in the throws of the '80s—and move to Roches Ridge, the picturesque Vermont town she visits on a ski trip. Roches Ridge is quiet, sleepy, and seemingly unchanged by the times. But Clea soon discovers this small town has big secrets—and even bigger characters. From the Don Johnson look-alike who introduces his salon's clientele to punk hairstyles and the band of militant lesbians camped out in Mink Creek to the romance-writing cosmetics saleswoman turned stalker and the strapping hillbilly with a predilection for animal skeleton art, Roches Ridge is livelier than Clea originally thinks. . . .
A rollicking small-town adventure, Bedrock features Alther's signature mix of unexpected, humorous characters, and a charming heroine on the long bumpy road to self-actualization.
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Lisa Alther, including rare photos from the author's personal collection.
