No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


A beautifully crafted novel about the pleasure of stories and the importance of the present. A woman of a certain age has hunkered down in a rainforest retreat to gain perspective on her complex life by writing. From the streets of Paris to the beaches of Cape Cod, to the tunnels of the New York City subway, she recreates people, places, events, love affairs, business endeavors and friendships. In the end, all she can keep in focus is the jungle veranda that she'd intended merely as a staging area.
