A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Now in paperback, acclaimed author and playwright David rabe?s stunningly observed novel about two very different women brought together by the unlikeliest of circumstances.

? Literary celebrity: Hailed as one of America?s greatest living playwrights, David rabe has attracted tremendous attention for more than thirty-five years for his plays, including Hurlyburly, Goose and Tomtom, and In the Boom Boom Room, which have been award-winning mainstays of New York theater for years; his previous novel Recital of the Dog, and a short story collection, A Primitive Heart, have received exceptional reviews.

? A transcendent novel with huge appeal: Set during the course of a single day in the small town of Belger, Iowa, Dinosaurs on the Roof follows the stories of Bernice Doorley and Janet Cawley. Janet is recently divorced and attempting to find peace and quiet, and perhaps even a solitary place to fall apart. Her plan is interrupted by Bernice, an old friend of Janet?s late mother Isabel. An elderly widow, Bernice explains that, according to her preacher, she and a few others from Belger will be delivered to the rapture that very evening, and she?s hoping Janet will alleviate her most pressing concern by promising to take care of her animals after she?s gone. Beautifully rendered, Dinosaurs on the Roof is an extraordinary novel that explores the questions of faith and survival with unforgettable humor and remarkable humanity.
