This month’s Fiction title


Mrs. Everything : a novel

by Weiner, Jennifer

Growing up in 1950s Detroit, Jo and Bethie Kaufman’s roles in the family are clearly defined. Jo is the tomboy, the bookish rebel with a passion to make the world more fair; Bethie is the pretty, feminine good girl, a would-be star who enjoys the power her beauty confers and dreams of a traditional life. As their lives unfold against the background of free love and Vietnam, Woodstock and women’s lib, Bethie becomes an adventure-loving wild child who dives headlong into the counterculture, up for anything– except settling down. Jo becomes a proper young mother in Connecticut, a witness to the changing world instead of a participant. Is it too late for the women to finally stake a claim on happily ever after?
