Francine Prose is full of surprises in speaking of her newest novel. It's narrated by a thirteen year-old girl whose sister has drowned. It looks like a conventional coming-of-age through-emotional-hardship book. Why, then, does Prose say her heroine reminds her of (surprise #1) Anne Frank? Why does she say the plot is modeled on (surprise #2) Hitchcock's Vertigo? Stay tuned.

Read an excerpt from Goldengrove.
