COOL'S RIDGE by Ursula Perrin
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: March 1, 1996

"Any writer pounding out the same thematic chords in successive works risks redundancy, but here the notes sounded seem to sink deeper in, giving characters a worn but comfortable feel, and their personalities a subtle, complex texture that comes from aging well."
Pursuing themes and situations near to the heart of her five previous novels (The Looking-Glass Lover, 1989, etc.), Perrin here places a troubled young woman on an upstate New Jersey communal farm, where she must cope with an inadequate marriage—as well as with her severely dysfunctional family—before discovering who she is and what she really wants from life.
