About The Book
“Mrs. Flax was happiest when she was leaving a place, but I wanted to stay put long enough to fall down crazy and hear the Word of God. I always called my mother Mrs. Flax.”
So begins this extraordinary first novel about one wild year in the life of fourteen-year-old Charlotte Flax, when she and her sister Kate move with Mrs. Flax into a sleepy 1960’s Massachusetts town. Mrs. Flax is a woman who wears polka-dot dresses and serves hors d’oeuvres for dinner every night, and Kate is a child who basically wants to be a fish.
And then there’s Charlotte, who in Patty Dann’s hands, is transformed into a young woman of infinite whim and variety. Charlotte’s main ambition in life is to become a saint, preferably martyred, though she’s Jewish. She’s smitten with the shy young caretaker at the convent at the top of the hill. Dann has created a young girl who accepts the unkindness of the mad universe in which she’s whirling and takes it on with a savage glee.
Charlotte Flax is like no one you have ever met — and someone you know very well.
