Description

"It was probably because I was so often taken away from Cambridge when I was young that I loved it as much as I did...? So begins this novel-from-life by the bestselling author of Girl, Interrupted, an exploration of memory and nostalgia set in the 1950s among the academics and artists of Cambridge, Massachusetts. London, Florence, Athens: Susanna, the precocious narrator of Cambridge, would rather be home than in any of these places. Uprooted from the streets around Harvard Square, she feels lost and excluded in all the locations to which her father's career takes the family. She comes home with relief-but soon enough wonders if outsiderness may be her permanent condition. Written with a sharp eye for the pretensions-and charms-of the intellectual classes, Cambridge captures the mores of an era now past, the ordinary lives of extraordinary people in a singular part of America, and the delights, fears, and longings of childhood.

Professional reviews

"Kathe MazurÕs talents shine in this wonderful novel by the author of GIRL, INTERRUPTED. Told from the point of view of young Susanna, who pines for her Massachusetts home during her familyÕs world travels, the audiobook is so real that the listener may hear her own voice in that of Mazur. No matter which memorable character she takes on, Mazur is always genuine and thoughtful. SusannaÕs restless spirit becomes oneÕs own as Mazur sympathetically creates a real girl with a true desire for happiness and a sense of home. Whether touring the museums of Florence or chafing against the restraints of school, young Susanna and her endless questioning resonate in MazurÕs lyrical voice. L.B.F.
