|Summary, etc.:||-- The New York Times Book Review -- The Boston Globe -- The story of what happens to these artists when they reach their destination is told from the point of view of Lara, Leonoraâs neglected fifteen-year-old daughter. Forced from a young age to live with her motherâs eccentric whims, tortured lovers, and entourage of gold-diggers, Lara suffers from emotional, educational, and geographical instability that a Mexican sojourn with surrealists isnât going to help. But when she meets the outcast Dadaist sculptor Jack Klinger, Lara thinks she might have found the understanding she so badly craves.Heartbreaking and strange, Costalegre is inspired by the real-life relationship between the heiress Peggy Guggenheim and her daughter, Pegeen. Courtney Maum triumphs with this wildly imaginative and curiously touching story of a privileged teenager who has everything a girl could wish forâexcept a mother who loves her back.|
