Chattanooga - A Novel

Our first title is from acclaimed author, Chet Raymo.  Chet Raymo grew up in Chattanooga, Tennessee and is Professor Emeritus of physics and astronomy at Stonehill College in Easton, Massachusetts. He is the author of more than a dozen books on science and nature for a popular audience, and four novels. His novel The Dork of Cork was made into the motion picture Frankie Starlight, starring Matt Dillon and Gabriel Byrne. He is a winner of the prestigious Lannan Literary Award. Raymo’s weekly column “Science Musings” appeared in the Boston Globe from 1983-2003, and his musings can still be read online at www.sciencemusings.com.

An earlier French language version of Chattanooga was published in 1995 to rave reviews.  Since then, Chet, along with his son Dan, have given the novel a major rewrite.  The new version includes six additional chapters.

Synopsis

Set against the backdrop of World War II and growing racial tension in Tennessee, Chattanooga finds Mamie Buffon, her seven daughters, two son-in-laws, granddaughter, bed-ridden brother, and two black housekeepers packed together in a highly dysfunctional household fraught with marital, sexual and racial tension. None of them could possibly imagine what the summer of 1944 had in store for them as the novel hurtles towards its dramatic conclusion.
