Reviews

In her newest work, Ansay (River Angel, LJ 12/97) puts us in the middle of a Valentine's Day wedding party at a kitschy wedding chapel and theme motel in rural Wisconsin. Once rumored to be a brothel, the motel has undergone an overzealous redecorating that hasn't improved its reputation. Outside a blizzard is raging, trapping even the bride's local relatives and creating a bonanza at the cash bar. Meanwhile, a domestic quarrel in a motel room goes awry, and a nervous stranger crashes the wedding supper. When some of the younger wedding guests investigate the motel, they find out more than they bargained for. Ansay flirts dangerously with sitcom-like stereotypesÄthe bride's deadpan mother, her perfect mother-in-law, her rotten little sister, even a couple of ghostsÄbut (except for the polka band) she keeps them from going over the top. By deftly maneuvering inside the heads of her characters, she succinctly informs us of family history. The combination of dry Midwestern wit with a light touch of the Gothic makes for hilarious reading. Recommended for popular fiction collections.ÄReba Leiding, James Madison Univ., Harrisonburg, VA Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
