This wonderful book is the author's first novel. Hanako Shimodo feels that Luciano Pavarotti is a god. To her daughter, Emily, this fixation is a harmless fantasy, the by-product of her mother's loneliness. Emily tells this story about what happens when her mother acts on her fantasy and invites the opera star to a post-performance supper at their Westchester County home. Emily is home after college working her summer job, which she dislikes almost as much as living back at home. At first Hanako seems pretty much her old self, still reliving her Japanese childhood, still adoring Pavarotti. But when it becomes clear that she is renovating the house in preparation for the visit from Pavarotti, Emily is suddenly confronted with a familiar quandry: How to deal with a parent who might be losing it! The binding is an attractive light green speckled paper. 243 pages, no marks or tears. Price not clipped. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall.
