Description
 

An 1916, Idella and Avis Hillock live on the edge of a chilly bluff in New Brunswick--a hardscrabble world of potato farms and lobster traps, rough men, hard work, and baffling beauty. From Gone, the heartbreaking story of their mothers medical crisis in childbirth, to the darkly comic Wake, which follows the grown siblings catastrophic efforts to escort their father, Wild Bill Hillocks body to his funeral, the stories of Idella and Avis offer a compelling and wry vision of two remarkable women. The vivid cast includes Idellas philandering husband Edward, her bewilderingly difficult mother-in-law--and Avis, whose serial romantic disasters never quell her irrepressible spirit. Jensens work evokes a time gone by and reads like an instant American classic. Beverly Jensen died of cancer at the age of forty-nine without publishing her work. Since her death, her fiction has been championed by a dedicated group of supporters, including Stephen King and Joyce Carol Oates.
