Review:

"I fell completely under the spell of Anton DiSclafani's amazing first novel and was gripped by its lush and dreamy evocations of Southern decorum, family secrets, and boarding school rituals. DiSclafani is wildly talented, and this is a sexy, suspenseful, gorgeously written book."--Curtis Sittenfeld, author of "Prep"

""The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls "is so sexy, smart, and vividly drawn that I was surprised to remember that this novel is Anton DiSclafani's first. With such a big-hearted and atmospheric book, Ms. DiSclafani's talents should be celebrated far and wide."-- Lauren Groff, author of "The Monsters of Templeton

""Thea Atwell is an unforgettable heroine, and DiSclafani's pitch-perfect details of time and place effortlessly drew me into this fantastic novel's authentic and alluring world."--Laura Moriarty, author of "The Chaperone"

"In her haunting debut, Anton DiSclafani reminded me how I came to love reading as a child, the way a book can so envelop you in its unique and vibrant world that even as you race toward the end, you find yourself dreading the moment it's finished. It's a fierce and tender, beautiful novel."--Aryn Kyle, author of "The God of Animals"

"Set in the 1930s, full of alluring descriptions, and featuring a headstrong lead character, this is a literary novel that is also full of scandal, sex, and secrets. . . . [Readers] will be held in thrall by the world so vividly and sensually rendered here in a novel that is as sophisticated in its writing as it is in its themes."--"Booklist "(starred review)

Descrizione libro Headline Publishing Group. Hardback. Condizione libro: new. BRAND NEW, The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls, Anton DiSclafani, Perfect for fans of The Great Gatsby, Tigers in Red Weather, and Curtis Sittenfield.1930s America, southern high society: Part love story, part coming-of-age novel, this is the moving, raw and exquisitely vivid story of an uncommon girl navigating a treacherous road to womanhood. Thea Atwell is fifteen years old in 1930, when, following a scandal for which she has been held responsible, she is 'exiled' from her wealthy and isolated Florida family to a debutante boarding school in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. As Thea grapples with the truth about her role in the tragic events of 1929, she finds herself enmeshed in the world of the Yonahlossee Riding Camp, with its complex social strata ordered by money, beauty and equestrienne prowess; where young women are indoctrinated in the importance of 'female education' yet expected to be married by twenty-one; a world so rarified as to be rendered immune (at least on the surface) to the Depression looming at the periphery, all overseen by a young headmaster who has paid a high price for abandoning his own privileged roots.
