Anywhere but Here by Mona Simpson

Anywhere But Hereis a moving, often comic portrait of wise child Ann August and her mother, Adele, a larger-than-life American dreamer. As they travel through the landscape of their often conflicting ambitions, Ann and Adele bring to life a novel that is a brilliant exploration of the perennial urge to keep moving, even at the risk of profound disorientation. Simpsons first novel is ultimately a heart-rendering tale of a mother and daughters invaluable relationship. The two women in this book are American originals. Ann is a new Huck Finn, a tough, funny, resourceful love of a girl. Adele is like no one Ive encountered, at once deplorable and admirable--and altogether believable. --Walker Percy Anywhere But Hereis a wonder: big, complex, masterfully written, its an achievement that lands [Simpson] in the front ranks of our best novelists. --Newsweek
