This offer is for a complete set of the works of Myla Goldberg - each of which has been SIGNED by her on their respective title pages! The books include: 1) "Bee Season" (2000) - her impressive debut. Not merely a coming-of-age story, the story delicately examines the unraveling fabric of one family. 2) "Time's Magpie" (2004) - a Crown Journeys volume based upon the time that Myla Goldberg lived in Prague. This imaginative, individualistic journey will show you the odd and unique corners of a city often seeking to erase what its very stones will not allow it to forget. 3) "Wickett's Remedy" (2005) - In a multidimensional, intricately wrought narrative, Myla Goldberg leads us back to Boston in the early part of the twentieth century and into two completely captivating worlds. One is that of Lydia, an Irish American shopgirl with bigger aspirations than your average young woman from South Boston. Meanwhile, a parallel narrative explores the world of QD Soda, the illegitimate offspring of "Wickett’s Remedy," stolen away by Henry Wickett’s one-time business partner Quentin Driscoll, who goes about transforming it into a soft drink empire. 4) "The False Friend" (2010) - Leaders of a mercurial clique of girls, Celia and Djuna reigned mercilessly over their three followers. One afternoon, they decided to walk home along a forbidden road. Djuna disappeared, and for twenty years Celia blocked out how it happened. Celia’s desperate search to understand what happened to Djuna has powerful consequences. A deeply resonant and emotionally charged story. 5) "Feast Your Eyes" (2019) - The first novel in nearly a decade from Myla Goldberg, "Feast Your Eyes" is a compelling and wholly original story about a female photographer grappling with ambition and motherhood, a balancing act familiar to women of every generation.
