Brand new books, dispatch from our warehouse in the UK

From Library Journal&newline;&newline;What could be more all-American than a longstanding family feud between an earnest funeral director and the visionary, grandly egotistical owner of a drive-in movie theater in Florida called the Flamingo? Especially when the owner's son, who narrates the tale, is an adopted Korean boy named Abe. And the owner's daughter, Louise, also Korean, overcomes a slight limp to become a famous movie star. And the son falls for the daughter of the funeral director in one more classically star-crossed romance. And, what's more, in the pre?Civil Rights Sixties, the hired hand who helps keep a lid on the boiling tensions is a wily black man. Young Abe Lee's narration is partly a tender coming-of-age tale, partly an astute view of a family coming painfully apart. Everything goes up in smoke at the end, including Louise's crazy, beloved dog, Frank, whose imprisonment in a tower above the family quarters is a painful reminder that everyone else in this story is boxed in, too?but not everyone breaks free. Highly recommended.?Barbara Hoffert, &doublequote;Library Journal&doublequote;&newline;Copyright 1997 Reed Business Information, Inc.&newline;--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. &newline;&newline;The New Yorker, Henry Louis Gates Jr.&newline;&newline;Larry Baker has a deft way with characters, large and small.... The Flamingo Rising has the buoyancy of books ... about growing up in the penumbra of someone larger than life.... Larry Baker is writing for grown-ups, but he remembers how it felt not to be one, and renders the experience in unforced, unshowy prose, neither folksy nor formal. The result is a novel that's both modest and surprisingly seductive.&newline;--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
