The House on Coliseum Street

'“An understated but powerful study of a young woman whose sheltered, modestly fortunate life is interrupted by an event that takes on traumatic dimensions and leaves her struggling between her instinct for convention and her deep longing to break away.” —Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post   “Grau proves once again that in the hands of a first-rate storyteller the shortest route between fact and feeling is not necessarily the straight line. . . . Writers of encyclopedic novels would do well to read her—and learn how to catch the shape of a lifetime in the merest shadow of event.” —Time   “[Grau] renders Joan’s state of mind so accurately that we know what it is like to live in her kind of hell.” —Saturday Review   “The sights and smells, the heat, humidity, and decay of New Orleans enfold the reader in [this] beautifully written novel.” —Library Journal  Praise for Shirley Ann Grau “Shirley Ann Grau’s quill is filled with gold.” —The New York Times  '
