              Machine Dreams (Paperback)

              By Phillips, Jayne Anne

              In her highly acclaimed debut novel, the bestselling author of Shelter introduces the Hampsons, an ordinary, small-town American family profoundly affected by the extraordinary events of history. Here is a stunning chronicle that begins with the Depression and ends with the Vietn...am War, revealed in the thoughts, dreams, and memories of each family member. Mitch struggles to earn a living as Jeans becomes the main breadwinner, working to coplete college and raise the family. While the couple fight to keep their marriage intact, their daughter Danner and son Billy forge a sibling bond of uncommon strength. When Billy goes off to Vietnam, Danner becomes the sole bond linking her family, whose dissolution mirrors the fractured state of America in the 1960s. Deeply felt and vividly imagined, this lyrical novel is among the wisest of a generation to grapple with a war that maimed us all ( The Village Voice ), by a master of contemporary fiction.

              A spectacularly riveting novel based on a real life crime by a con man who preyed on widows: a brilliant fusion of fact and fiction, Jayne Anne Phillips has written the novel of the year (Stephen King)-- think In Cold Blood meets The Lovely Bones-- but sexy ( People ). In Chicago... in 1931, Asta Eicher, a lonely mother of three, is desperate for money after the sudden death of her husband. She begins to receive seductive letters from a chivalrous, elegant man named Harry Powers, who promises to cherish and protect her, ultimately to marry her and to care for her and her children. Weeks later, Asta and her three children are dead. Emily Thornhill, one of the few women journalists in the Chicago press, wants to understand what happened to this beautiful family, particularly to the youngest child, Annabel, an enchanting girl with a precocious imagination and sense of magic. Determined, Emily travels to West Virginia to cover the murder trial and to investigate the story herself, accompanied by a charming and unconventional photographer equally drawn to the case. These heroic characters, driven by secrets of their own, will stop at nothing to ensure Powers is convicted. A tragedy, a love story, and a tour de force of obsession, Jayne Anne Phillips's Quiet Dell hauntingly imagines the victims' hopes, dreams, and terror ( O, The Oprah Magazine ). It is a mesmerizing and deeply moving novel from one of America's most celebrated writers.
