Suzzy Roche, author of The Town Crazy, in conversation with Jane Hamilton - a virtual Ink/Well event sponsored by Ink Link Books and Boswell Book Company
From Suzzy Roche, one of the founding members of The Roches, comes anovel of passion, absurdity, innocence, and sorrow. Roche will be in conversation with Jane Hamilton on Wednesday, October 21, 7 pm CDT.
The Town Crazy is set in the sleepy town of Hanzloo, Pennsylvania. In 1961, a single father moves into town with his young son, which arouses suspicion from the husbands and the interest of the wives, but at the same time, one of the wives seems to be losing her mind, and no one knows what to do. A contemporary, often humorous take on a bygone era, The Town Crazy also delves into the terror and cruelty of childhood, the dangerous loneliness of failing marriages, sexual repression and desire, and the intersection of art and religion, all culminating in a tragedy for which everyone in the town bears some responsibility.
