Über diesen Titel


Though the late Frank O'Rourke published more than sixty novels, Ellen and the Barber has never before been brought to readers. St. Martin's is delighted to present this atmospheric and insightful novel. Vividly evoking a small midwest town during the Great Depression and World War II, it introduces us to three strong and suprising young women and the men in their lives: Ellen, who has no good reason to deny her natural instincts; Miriam, torn between the promise of a loving future and the demands of family and home, and Vera, whose intelligence and restless hunger for life plunges her into disaster.

Around these three vibrant young women O'Rourke has created a town so real and convincing that the reader experiences a sense of deja vu. Through dust storms and drought, through economic depression and the lingering demise of small farming, through coping with Prohibition and the war that took its young men, the town and its people let us live and laugh and sometimes cry with it. This book is a gem of many facets, each one giving off a warm and sparkling light.

From AudioFile:

This never before published novel is the story of three young women in the 1930s living in the American Midwest and reacting in very different ways to the constraints on women of that time. Mary Woods narrates their stories in a voice that says, "Take notice of these women and their stories." She sets a strong pace, parsing through long and complex (but elegant) sentences with a care and expression that does justice to the author's style and guides the listener well. In these rich character studies, she relies primarily on inflection and timing to present dialogue rather than a variety of voices. By narrating rather than dramatizing, Woods lets the subtlety and rich texture of the writing hold center stage. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
