The Lake Shore Limited - Sue Miller

Sue Miller has written a lovely, touching book about the complications of the lives of middle-aged men and women. The novel revolves around a new play, The Lake Shore Limited (Knopf, $25.95), being tried out in Boston. Billy, the playwright, has incorporated her own experience from six years earlier when her lover, Gus, was on one of the planes that crashed into the World Trade Center. Leslie, Gus’s sister, wants very much to fix up Billy with Sam, an architect and a good friend. Miller weaves the story like a piece of music, focusing chapters on four lead characters, all of whom are expertly portrayed, as are the relationships of spouses, lovers, parents and adult children in this fast-paced story.
