The Book Cellar welcome's author Cathleen Schine and her new book, Fin & Lady. At the heart of the novel lies the search for a new kind of family. Around this story is wrapped New York in the 60’s, Greenwich Village in particular, which Schine captures thoroughly: Nehru jackets, drugs and happenings, sit-ins and marches against the Vietnam War, desegregation—changes, large and small—all searches for new ways to be free and happy.
Schine is the author of the novels The New Yorkers and The Love Letter. Her most recent novel, The Three Weissmanns of Westport, was a national bestseller and filled bookstores across the country when Schine visited. Fin & Lady is a marvelous follow-up and promises to be a great summer read.
