Yesterday, I kissed my husband for the last time . .
It’s the summer of 1959, and the well-trimmed lawns of Sunnylakes, California, wilt under the sun.
At some point during the long, long afternoon, Joyce Haney, wife, mother, vanishes from her home, leaving behind two terrified children and a bloodstain on the kitchen floor.
A beguiling, deeply atmospheric debut novel from the cracked heart of the American Dream,
The Long, Long Afternoon is at once a page-turning mystery and an intoxicating vision of the ways in
which women everywhere are diminished, silenced and ultimately under-estimated.
