Sleeping Arrangements

Author(s): Laura Shane Cunningham

Biography & Memoir

Very few books have the magic of Sleeping Arrangements - the memoir of Lily Shaine, an orphan brought up by her two eccentric bachelor uncles.
Uncle Len is a 6 foot 6 inch private investigator, a trench-coated cross between Abraham Lincoln and Sam Spade. Uncle Gabe, the librarian, is a confirmed dreamer who writes gospel songs in his spare time. With her uncles as mentors, the human jungle of the Bronx in the 1950s as her playground, the schoolroom as her torture chamber, and very knowing little girls as her playmates, Lily learns the secrets of life, sex, death and, above all, family love.
A wry, funny and deeply affectionate portrait of the most unlikely of happy families, Sleeping Arrangements is a modern classic.
