If I knew you were going to be this beautiful, I never would have let you go
Unabridged ; CD.
It is the summer of 1972, and Katie has just turned eighteen. Katie and her town, Elephant Beach, are both on the verge: Katie of adulthood, Elephant Beach of gentrification -- but not yet. Elephant Beach is still gritty, working-class, close-knit. And Katie spends her time smoking and drinking with her friends, dreaming about a boy just back from Vietnam who's still fighting a battle Katie can't understand. Impeccably crafted and hugely affectionate, this novel in stories is a vivid portrait of a place whose conflicts -- between mothers and daughters, men and women, haves and have-nots -- reverberate to our own time.
