Product description

""It was probably because I was so often taken away from Cambridge when I was young that I loved it as much as I did . . . "" So begins this novel-from-life by the bestselling author of "Girl, Interrupted," an exploration of memory and nostalgia set in the 1950s among the academics and artists of Cambridge, Massachusetts. London, Florence, Athens: Susanna, the precocious narrator of "Cambridge," would rather be home than in any of these places. Uprooted from the streets around Harvard Square, she feels lost and excluded in all the locations to which her father's career takes the family. She comes home with relief--but soon enough wonders if outsiderness may be her permanent condition. Written with a sharp eye for the pretensions--and charms--of the intellectual classes, "Cambridge" captures the mores of an era now past, the ordinary lives of extraordinary people in a singular part of America, and the delights, fears, and longings of childhood.

Review quote

"A literary tour-de-force displaying Kaysen's unique talent for creating an engaging ensemble cast that comes uniquely alive under adolescent eyes . . . Affectingly real." ---Publishers Weekly
