The bestselling author of Birdsong and Charlotte Gray delivers an enthralling vibrantly evocative novel set in America in 1960 when the country stood poised between the paranoia of the Cold War and the ebullience of the New FrontierFaulks' heroine is Mary Van der Linden a pretty reserved Englishwoman wh. I was beginning to despair slightly of Sebastian Faulks After being bowled over by Charlotte Gray and Birdsong I was underwhelmed by Engleby and The Girl at the Lion d Or They had vivid scenery and beautiful language but I could never uite connect with the characters in a way that compelled me to keep picking up the book On Green Dolphin Street was completely compelling I got completely wrapped up in the tangled lives of Charlie and Mary van der Linden and Frank Renzo I grabbed every opportunity to read ten or fifteen pages to see what new turn the lives would take This is Faulks at his best laying bare the lives of ordinary yet heroic people as they go about their lives making decisions that sometimes make them and sometimes break them This was the first book for some time where I found myself looking for spare minutes just to be able to pick it back up and now that it s done I feel maybe I should have read it even slower
