Floating in the Neversink

Posted on Friday, October 25, 2019 | No Comments

In the summer of 1955, nine-year-old Amanda Gerber tearfully leaves her best friend, Francine, and their adventurous life on her block in Brooklyn’s Flatbush and joins her cantankerous family on the long, hot drive to her grandmother’s home in the Catskill Mountains among the city’s Jews who flocked to countless hotels and bungalow colonies in the heyday of the Borscht Belt. In the idyllic mountains, Amanda (Mandy) becomes ensconced in the tumult of her extended family and their friends, often seeking solace in the woods with her beloved cousin Laura. Through the following summers, interspersed with the heightened drama of her emotionally charged city life, Mandy faces severe tests to her survival mechanisms, including the pain of loss, abuse, and betrayal, while family secrets threaten to disrupt her life even further. A novel-in-stories, Floating in the Neversink is a testament to the power of survival, friendship, and love.
