Tiny Thoughts on Unselfishness:The joys of sharing Agnes De Bezenac
Agnes Parker is going to science camp, which means pranks, fun, rivalries - but will it change a longtime friendship for good? The first thing Agnes and her best friend, Prejean, learn at science camp is that they won´t be sharing the same cabin. Being apart gives Agnes a different perspective, and a few worries, about what others think of her longtime friend. Everyone seems to be going on and on about how beautiful Prejean is. A beauty queen? What if Prejean starts acting like one? Soil studies, camp pranks, and a weird bunkmate all play a role in this funny, insightful story of the everyday casualties and payoffs of growing up.´´Camp culture forces the friends to confront racial prejudice, loyalty and a blooming interest in boys. Realistic dialogue and smart characters offer a richness and depth without sacrificing some serious fun. The campfire is bright and warm when shared with Agnes and her friends.” (Kirkus Reviews) 1.

The Great Nebula in Orion The Great Nebula in Orion centers on the accidental reunion of two mature women who went to college together. Louise (Stephanie Gordon) is a successful New York fashion designer who lives in an apartment overlooking the Hayden Planetarium. She has run into Carrie (Tanya Berezin) in Bergdorf´s on a shopping trip from her home in Boston. Carry has married into the upper 2 percent, firmly entrenched in a life of social perquisites; but the site of the planetarium takes her back to an almost forgotten romance with a young dreamer who introduced her to the majestic mysteries of the constellations in the night sky. As these two catch up on the intervening years, secrets are revealed that shake the complacency of the present, with tumultuous passions buried in the past. Ludlow Fair In a turn of comedic mastery, Ludlow Fair treats us to the tribulations of two mismatched young women sharing an apartment. Rachel (Trish Hawkins) has turned in her recent boyfriend, Joe, for making off with her savings, and now wonders if she´s done the right thing. Her contrasting roommate is cynical Agnes (Conchata Ferrell) who reminds Rachel of thedizzying history of young men the pretty girl has run through before falling prey to a hunk who´s ripped her off. While Rachel stews over her moral dilemma, Agnes is preparing for bed, fighting off a cold, and hoping for a threadbare romantic lunch with her boss´ skinny son. All Rachel wants is to be assured things will be better tomorrow, but Agnes shoots that down: It will be exactly the same tomorrow. The bittersweet contrast between these young ladies is heartbreakingly funny.
