The Writing on the Wall by Lynn Sharon Schwartz


Dan Wakefield recommends The Writing on the Wall, a novel by Lynn Sharon Schwartz: "The Writing on the Wall is a novel that mines art and understanding out of the 9/11 nightmare, bringing the effects of the tragedy into individual lives of credible characters. The author's earlier masterwork, Disturbances in the Field, which follows the lives of three Barnard students into marriage, motherhood, and maturity, is being reissued this year." (Counterpoint)
