Summary
In her stunning debut collection, The Wonder Garden , Lauren Acampora brings to the page with enchanting realism the myriad lives of a suburban town and lays them bare. These linked stories take a trenchant look at the flawed people of Old Cranbury, incisive tales that reveal at each turn the unseen battles we play out behind drawn blinds, the creeping truths from which we distract ourselves, and the massive dreams we haul quietly with us and hold close
Summary
Shares the myriad and bizarre secrets of a Connecticut suburb, including a young soon-to-be mother who watches her husband walk away from a fifteen-year career in advertising at the urging of his spirit animal
