Peach Sweeney makes her way through a Sixties’ landscape littered with sex, proms, fashion, rock & roll, clueless parents, and her own righteous if confounded self-regard straight into the reader’s heart. - Steven Schwartz, A Good Doctor’s Son and Therapy: A Novel
A prom--the climax of lively and painful high school years. Throw in the sexual revolution, a stuttering cousin for a date, and a parking valet dressed like Abraham Lincoln, and looking cool is an impossible dream. The hilarious narrator of our story tries to leave her painful past behind, and find a way to be the free spirit her friends demand. Peach tries, somehow, to be herself.
Peach is a book of genuine fictional beauty. - Chuck Wachtel, Joe The Engineer and 3/03
