A marriage made at Woodstock
Cathie Pelletier is back with a hilarious, touching, and insightful novel about the Woodstock generation. In A Marriage Made at Woodstock, Fred and Lorraine Stone, a forty-something couple who met and fell in love at the famous musical festival in upstate New York, have evolved and grown - but not in the same direction. Fred has become Frederick Stone, Computer Accountant and Consultant, while his wife, Lorraine, has become Chandra - that's Sanskrit for changeable - Stone, animal rights activist and teacher of seminars in human psychology. Now that the nineties are the sixties upside down, can this marriage survive? Cathie Pelletier has established herself as one of the most bitingly funny and brilliantly original observers of the American landscape and spirit. Now, with her incisive wit and natural storytelling powers at their peak, Pelletier makes us look hard - and laugh even harder - at how strange life has become for children of the sixties. In A Marriage Made at Woodstock, she takes us to Portland, Maine, and into the lives of her most appealing and surprising characters to date.
