About the Book
Moving along the Maine Coast and beyond, the interconnected stories in Goodnight, Beautiful Women bring us into the sultry, mysterious inner lives of New England women and girls as they navigate the dangers and struggles of their outer worlds. With novelistic breadth and a quicksilver emotional intelligence, Noyes explores the ruptures and vicissitudes of growing up and growing old. Dark and brilliant, rhythmic and lucid, Goodnight, Beautiful Women marks the arrival of a new young voice in American fiction.
