Description

A middle-aged housewife whose rebellious inner child runs away with her talent transforms herself into a fearless young gay man in this winner of the James Tiptree Jr. Award.

Larque Harootunian is having a midlife crisis like no other -- but then again, there is much about the frumpy, middle-aged housewife and mother that could never be considered ordinary. Larque's lifelong ability to generate "dopplegangers," for example -- physical manifestations of her thoughts and emotions -- has been a constant source of stress. And now she is being tormented by Skylark, a re-creation of her younger self, an angry inner child who is tormenting Larque about abandoning her youthful ambitions while running away with her artistic abilities, thereby depriving the older Larque of a livelihood as a painter of kitsch.

But perhaps this is Larque's opportunity to explore her options. Acquiescing to Sky's demands that she change herself, Larque tries on a series of different personas -- to the consternation of her mother, husband, and teenage sons -- and finds her way to Popular Street. There, among the devil-may-care misfits, Larque can be Lark, a handsome young gay man, and quite possibly discover what her life is really about.

In her critically acclaimed contemporary fantasy, multiple award-winning author Nancy Springer breaks through boundaries while provocatively comingling the real and the surreal. Larque on the Wing is a marvel -- a moving, funny, surprising, and transcendent tale of one woman's strange quest to come to terms with who she truly is.
