Boston Globe

For posterity’s sake…

Write up in The Boston Globe.

“The tall pines, rocky shores, and austere New England landscape of Bar Harbor, Maine, is the setting for Terri-Lynne DeFino’s summery new novel, “The Bar Harbor Retirement Home for Famous Writers (and Their Muses)’’ (William Morrow), out this week. The book follows one-time literary legend bad-boy Alfonse Carducci as he makes a final home at a Bar Harbor retirement community populated by the aging literati. There he meets nurse Cecibel Bringer, whose face was badly damaged in an accident. She serves as an unexpected muse to the blocked Carducci, and he lets her regain a sense of the possibility of love. DeFino, who lives in rural New England, has written a beachy book in which the fictional world and the real one blend and blur, and about the ways in which age doesn’t limit our ability to connect, and the opportunities to be found when one stays open being inspired.”

    My favorite quote so far: “Silence crept out of the shadows to bask in the sunshine with them.”
