9780099289845: Sleeping Beauties

Susanna Moore's novel is set in Hawaii whose shimmering beauty and meloncholy traditions are at once seductive and dangerously hard to leave. Or so they prove for Clio, a thirteen year-old runaway who is raised by her eccentric aunt Emma, a collector of legends, myths, and rites of their native island. Emma teaches Clio what it means to swim out of the currents of time, to exchange her small past for a grand one. But when that same past begins to take on a crushing weight, Clio on impulse marries a well-known Hollywood actor, providing her with the promise of escape from her family and the entanglements of island life.

Review:

"Sleeping Beauties expands a body of work that is eloquent and disturbing, by a writer whose fiction continues to open unexpected doors." ( New York Times Book Review)

"She writes scenes that can take you breath away. Susanna Moore sings as sweetly as any writer can." ( Los Angeles Times Book Review)

"The best of [her novels]... Dreamlike and painterly, full of the richness of Hawaiian language, customs and legends, and of the sensuousness of Hawaiian landscape." ( USA Today)
