Riassunto: Very few books have the magic of Sleeping Arrangements - the memoir of Lily Shaine, an orphan brought up by her two eccentric bachelor uncles. Uncle Len is a 6 foot 6 inch private investigator, a trench-coated cross between Abraham Lincoln and Sam Spade. Uncle Gabe, the librarian, is a confirmed dreamer who writes gospel songs in his spare time. With her uncles as mentors, the human jungle of the Bronx in the 1950s as her playground, the schoolroom as her torture chamber, and very knowing little girls as her playmates, Lily learns the secrets of life, sex, death and, above all, family love. A wry, funny and deeply affectionate portrait of the most unlikely of happy families, Sleeping Arrangements is a modern classic.
L'autore: Laura Shaine Cunningham's books include the novels Dreams of Rescue (to be published by Bloomsbury in 2006) and Beautiful Bodies and one other memoir, A Place in the Country. She lives in New York and writes regularly for the theatre (Beautiful Bodies leads a dual life as a play with global popularity) and for publications such as the New Yorker, New York Times and Atlantic Monthly.
