Fin & Lady: A Novel

by Cathleen Schine

Farrar, Straus And Giroux | July 9, 2013 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

Fin & Lady: A Novel is rated 1 out of 5 by 1.

From the author of The Three Weissmanns of Westport, a wise, clever story of New York in the ’60s

It’s 1964. Eleven-year-old Fin and his glamorous, worldly, older half sister, Lady, have just been orphaned, and Lady, whom Fin hasn’t seen in six years, is now his legal guardian and his only hope. That means Fin is uprooted from a small dairy farm in rural Connecticut to Greenwich Village, smack in the middle of the swinging ’60s. He soon learns that Lady—giddy, careless, urgent, and obsessed with being free—is as much his responsibility as he is hers.
     So begins Fin & Lady, the lively, spirited new novel by Cathleen Schine, the author of the bestselling The Three Weissmanns of Westport. Fin and Lady lead their lives against the background of the ’60s, the civil rights movement, and the Vietnam War—Lady pursued by ardent, dogged suitors, Fin determined to protect his impulsive sister from them and from herself.
     From a writer The New York Times has praised as “sparkling, crisp, clever, deft, hilarious, and deeply affecting,” Fin & Lady is a comic, romantic love story: the story of a brother and sister who must form their own unconventional family in increasingly unconventional times.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing... Story Description: Farrar, Straus And Giroux | July 9, 2013 | Hardcover From the author of ‘The Three Weissmanns of Westport’, a wise, clever story of New York in the 60’s. It’s 1964. Eleven-year-old Fin and his glamorous, worldly, older half-sister, Lady, have just been orphaned, and Lady, whom Fin hasn’t seen in six years, is now his legal guardian and his only hope. That means Fin is uprooted from a small dairy farm in rural Connecticut to Greenwich Village, smack in the middle of the swinging 60’s. He soon learns that Lady-giddy, careless, urgent, and obsessed with being free – is as much his responsibility as he is hers. So begins Fin and Lady, the lively, spirited new novel by Cathleen Schine. Fin and Lady lead their lives against the background of the 60’s, the civil rights movement, and the Vietnam War – Lady pursued by ardent, dogged suitors, Fin determined to protect his impulsive sister from them and from herself. From a writer The New York Times has praised as “sparkling, crisp, clever, deft, hilarious, and deeply affecting,” Fin and Lady is a comic, romantic love story: the story of a brother and sister who must form their own unconventional family in increasingly unconventional times. My Review: I was a tad disappointed in this one and the story really didn’t do all that much for me. I’d purchased it on someone else’s recommendation that I would absolutely “love” it. I guess my idea and this person’s idea of an interesting story are a bit different. However, just because I didn’t particularly enjoy the novel doesn’t mean that there aren’t tons of you out there who will.
