By Diana E. Sheets

American Suite is an edgy comedy of manners. What occurs while a WASP family members turns into multicultural—a little bit Jewish, a section Hindu, and, remember the fact that, African-American? here's a “chick lit” novel that upends our notions approximately romance, superstar, family members, identification, and our likely insatiable starvation for memoir to invite, “Who are we actually, and what are we becoming?” >>>>>>>

“Diana Sheets has written an exceptionally cutting edge novel. She cleverly tells the tale of 3 girls, a mom and her daughters, via compelling diary entries from every one of them over a 12 months interval. they're clever, subtle ladies, every one juggling their very own lives and private relationships, in addition to the usually adverse familial one amongst the 3 of them. Ms. Sheets has skillfully stored each one personality in personality, now not continuously a simple activity, and their tales are informed in any such means that every voice is obviously outlined. to easily say, 'It’s a true web page turner,' in some way doesn’t appear to do American Suite justice, yet that's precisely what this publication is. I couldn’t wait to find what amazing writing awaited me at the subsequent web page. My congratulations to Ms. Sheets on a superb story.” Kathleen Kubik, writer, Neither Sand Nor Sea >>>>>>>>>>>

“Diana Sheets is unafraid of taking over the sacred cows of ‘chick lit’ in a sweeping kin saga that gives up horny males, violent and treacherous romance, uninteresting marriage, soulful union and innovative girls . . . . non secular and religious confusions vie for cognizance with family members loyalties and geographic rootedness as a brand new Yorker strikes to the Midwest looking for a good-enough life.” Jerry Sander, writer of limitless Calling (Certain regulations Apply)
