The tempest of Clemenza : a novel by Glenda Adams( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dark, brilliant, aching, astonishingly unsentimental story within a tale within a mystery is haunted by impending doom. Clemenza's mother writes this story in tribute to the child she has lost. Her challenge is to write without sentimentality and without the dishonesty of romance, even while she acknowledges that sentiment and romance are important to young girls. This mother, whose own life has been wounded by malevolent men, wants to allow her child her dreamy hopes without seeing them abused by a world of masculine violence. A storm-tossed lake in Vermont, Shakespeare, academic word bullies in an Australian university, James Joyce, a mysterious van, a kidnapping, a lost manuscript, each thread weaves with the next, tighter and tighter in this highly intelligent and unsettling novel

When William Badger is ten years old his mother Rose takes him to a boarding house in Manly - Seven Miles from Sydney, and a Thousand Miles from Care. Left there, abandoned by the glorious Rose, who once danced and twirled on her little pointy shoes, William sits in the hedge and waits for her return. But the Rose he longs for never returns; the mother who comes back is much too angry to twirl. The only clue William has to this bewildering change is the name on a document he sees in the dining room sideboard: Longleg, the perfect name for an imaginary friend, or an alter ego
