Description
A humorous journey from '80s Manhattan to the wild side of small-town living. 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 throes 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.
