From the author of The Three Weissmanns of Westport, a wise, clever story of New York in the '60s It's 1964. Eleven-year-old Fin and his glamorous, worldly, older half sister, Lady, have just been orphaned, and Lady, whom Fin hasn't seen in six years, is now his legal guardian and his only hope. That means Fin is uprooted from a small dairy farm in rural Connecticut, landing in Greenwich Village in the middle of the Swinging Sixties. He soon learns that Lady-giddy, impulsive, and pursued by an ardent and dogged set of suitors-is as much his responsibility as he is hers. From a writer the New York Times has praised as sparkling, crisp, clever, deft, hilarious, and deeply affecting, Cathleen Schine's Fin & Lady is a comic love story for the ages: an enchanting novel of a brother and sister who must form their own unconventional family in increasingly unconventional times.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Cathleen SchinePublisher: St. Martins Press-3PLPublished: 04/01/2014ISBN: 9781250050052Pages: 288Weight: 0.85lbsSize: 8.90h x 5.90w x 0.80dReview Citations: New York Times Book Review 07/13/2014 pg. 24
