  • Written by author Paula Phelan, the novel follows the lives of fictional and historical characters throughout the pivotal events of 1939.
  • By using the columns of a theater critic and war correspondent, Phelan vividly shows the American art world at its zenith as it is eclipsed by the pending world war.
