Book - Maggie Now
Maggie-Now grew up in Brooklyn, with the green young century, among the immigrant Irish and Germans. She was a strong woman who gave of herself. All her life men leaned on her for support: at first, her widower father and her wild younger brother; then her husband, the strange and beguiling Claude.
Maggie-Now is a memorable novel off a woman's life - her disappointments, her triumphs, her family, her friends - which Betty Smith has written with the warmth and sensitivity that have drawn millions of readers to her work.
