Costalegre
Costalegre | Courtney Maum
7 posts | 4 read | 23 to read
Sinuous and striking, heartbreaking and strange, Costalegre is heavily inspired by the real-life relationship between the heiress Peggy Guggenheim and her daughter, Pegeen. Acclaimed author Courtney Maum triumphs with this wildly imaginative and curiously touching story of a privileged teenager who has everything a girl could wish for except for a mother who loves her back.

“I wish I were a mermaid. I wish that I could swim. I wish that I could scream until my pores were tentacles and I pulled each and every person down with me until life was soft again. And then I would come up on the shore and I‘d be human. And I‘d know where to go.”

(This book gutted me in ways I wasn‘t expecting).

My new library hold came in- how great is this cover. It is WWII and Lara is in Costalegre Mexico living with her mother and 20th century surrealist artists as they wait out the war together. A gaggle of surrealists together trying to make dinner??? Yes please. 227 pages- recommended by NYT recently.

LauraBeth Love this cover! 6mo

Hey, would you like to read a novel written from the point of view of Peggy Guggenheim‘s teenage daughter, set in the Mexican jungle during World War II and populated by lightly fictionalized version is of the artists who escaped the war with her? It‘s so crazy good! Watch for it in July from @Tin_House! Also, I want to wallpaper a room with this cover.
