So begins Fin & Lady, the lively, spirited new novel by Cathleen Schine, the author of the best-selling The Three Weissmanns of Westport.
Fin and Lady lead their lives against the background of the ’60s, the civil rights movement, and the Vietnam War - Lady pursued by ardent, dogged suitors, Fin determined to protect his impulsive sister from them and from herself.
From a writer The New York Times has praised as "sparkling, crisp, clever, deft, hilarious, and deeply affecting", Fin & Lady is a comic, romantic love story: the story of a brother and sister who must form their own unconventional family in increasingly unconventional times.

Back in the Sixties
A wonderful read about a boy, Fin, growing up in the sixties in Greenwich Village, with his sister Lady his guardian. Anne Twomey's narration was exceptional. I am the same age as Fin and enjoyed my trip back to a different time.
