She Loves You: A Curious Tale Concerning a Miraculous Intervention
"She Loves You is, in the tradition of the fairy tale, a novel poured into a thimble which contains, among other phenomena: a birth, a death, love both perfect and flawed, a miraculous visitation, a noodle kugel, a dachshund, a stern patriarch, a hope-crazed teenage girl, and John, Paul, George, and Ringo." "Like fathers and daughters everywhere, the teenage narrator and her father find their once blissful union torn asunder by forces they cannot fully understand. In a moment of ecstatic optimism, the girl conceives of a plot whereby she will win back her father's favor by conquering his disdain for the Beatles. Then one night around supper time her hopes are matched by her wildest imaginings when the Fab Four's limo breaks down in front of the family's suburban ranch home. The resulting encounter is as hilarious as it is touching and as true as it is unlikely - changing nothing ... and everything."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
