A Sea of White Impatiens by Loren McLeod

No one who grew up during the Depression deserved to suffer children who belonged both to the Baby Boom and X generations, but William and Joan Gallagher did; nine, over sixteen years, and did they suffer. How these two fine, moral people produced children who committed larceny, engaged in strange sex, sometimes on video, used cremated remains as confetti and got haircuts at the Port Authority Bus Terminal is beyond explanation. Arrogant, tribal, bloodthirsty and sweet, the Gallagher children would only be on each others teams, and while seemingly a world apart from their parents, they shared more than heavy eyebrows over gorgeous eyes.<P>Part family memoir, part confessional, all fiction, narrator Christian Gallagher describes in A Sea of White Impatiens his parents and eight brothers and sisters in a dry, frank tone that will have you gasping in horror on one page, shrieking with laughter on another, and beaming with warm affection on others.<P>Author Loren McLeods wicked little visit to 12 Cherrywood in upper-class suburban New York is rough going at times, but readers will find their stay enjoyable, their knowledge of the unusual Gallagher children reassuring, and their regard for William and Joan Gallagher immense.
