The Hunchback of Neiman Marcus: A Novel About Marriage, Motherhood, and Mayhem

Holly is a 50-year-old mother and wife facing the crisis of her only child heading to college, compounded by her fear that her husband is having an affair and her editor’s regular reminders that her manuscript is seriously overdue. Her fears coalesce during a shopping trip, where she spots a elderly hunchbacked woman she fears becoming and pours all her neuroses into a series of poems written in blank verse. The story’s structure is unusual, to be sure, but ultimately offers a fresh viewpoint on a common narrative.
