BOOK REVIEW

MIAMI by Evelyn Wilde Mayerson
Released: March 10, 1994

"A certainly competent saga, with (thank goodness) a genealogical table appended."
The author of Well and Truly (1990) and other genially predictable, surprisingly touching human dramas—often with humorous garnish—dedicates this century-spanning (1886-1992) Miami saga to James Michener, ``who encouraged me to try a broad canvas.'' But while Mayerson, always an attractive storyteller, easily achieves readability, her forte—the tensing out of human frailties and eccentricities—is shoved aside here in the necessary corralling of gobs of historical material dealing with the evolution of Miami, the struggles of blacks and Native Americans, and three exponentially increasing families.

An oddly unfinished novel in which past and present mingle in the mind of an emotionally disturbed teenager, but not to any clear purpose. Read full book review >
