Description

NC Literary Hall of Fame inductee Lee Smith's Blue Marlin centers on the Blue Marlin Motel in 1959, where Jenny, her beautiful socialite mother, and chastened father share their sunny days with movie stars who are in town to make the movie Operation Petticoat. Jenny is precocious and a bit of a sleuth, so her innocent "observations" to uncover the secrets of movie stars also end up revealing the secrets of her own family. Smith delivers humor and honesty to her flawed characters with genuine Southern dignity.
