FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: March 19, 2002

"The upshot: She doesn't have much of a story, and neither do we."
Rower's second, as dismal as its predecessor (Armed Response, 1995), trades the former's West Coast trappings for the Hamptons as the artist/writer narrator tries desperately to turn the dead wives of rival painters William de Kooning and Jackson Pollock into posthumous friends—and straighten out her own life in the bargain.
