On a hot summer night in Connecticut, the coming of the full moon transforms the lives of a young teenage girl, a failed writer living in his mother's attic, three adolescent male troublemakers, an elderly woman, and others. 15,000 first printing.

Blackwell North Amer
"A hot summer night in southern Connecticut, tide going out and the moon still rising. Laura Engstrom, fourteen years old, sits up in bed and throws the covers off."
Others, too, are awakened by a chorus of night voices: Haverstraw, a thirty-nine-year-old failed writer living in his mother's attic; an old woman who lives alone; three teenage boys looking for trouble; a gang of girls who roam the night and break into houses; a lonely young man looking for love; a beautiful mannequin whose cold fiberglass arms begin to quicken; a group of restless children; and assorted dolls, toys, and animals long forgotten in the attic.
Steven Millhauser transforms our childhood legends of the night into a hypnotic adult tale of passionate enchantment, encounters of darkness and illumination, human passions and inhuman awakenings.

I enjoyed this short collection of vignettes about one summer night in a neighborhood in Connecticut. The citizens are charming, daring, and sometimes unusual. You can easily read this in one sitting.
