House Under Snow by Jill Bialosky

A first novel by an acclaimed American poet, House Under Snow is a story of mothers and daughters, of sexual identity, of a family slowly disintegrating after the premature death of its patriarch. Anna Crane, soon to be married, reflects back on her childhood in Ohio during the 1960s and 70s with her two sisters and her charismatic, self-destructing mother. Evoking the claustrophobia of small-town life, Annas first passionate love affair with a troubled boy who works as a groom and trainer at a horse track, and her mothers endless stream of suitors and a failed marriage, the novel races toward a chilling conclusion when Anna is betrayed by the two most important figures in her young life. Not since Alice McDermotts That Night has there been such a telling portrait of first love. And not since Mona Simpsons Anywhere But Here have we witnessed the destructive, seductive nature of a mother who insists on competing with her children. An unforgettable tale of the power and vulnerability of sex and family, history and the past, House Under Snow is a lyrical and brilliant fictional debut.
