Joan Chase, an author whose first book was published when she was 46 and attracted awards and accolades, died on April 17 at a nursing home in Needham, Mass. She was 81. Her husband, Alexander Solomita, confirmed the death. The novel, he wrote, reveals a writer who understands the tyranny of the human heart - and who is not afraid to take risks.

Even the wolves that surround the great house of Willoughby Chase are not as cruel and merciless as the evil Miss Slighcarp. Bonnie and Sylvia must use all their wits to survive. The first title in the now classic Willoughby Chase saga is set in 1832 in a period of English history that never happened. Illustrated by Pat Marriott.

Comments to eBook The Evening Wolves: A Novel
Umsida
Joan Chase's second novel, told from the points of view of three children, is a deep and deeply moving book. The prose is masterful, ranging from brightly fluid to tough talking tough. This dysfunctional family is dysfunctional in its own unique way, and the two daughters and their little brother are lucky to escape the sad, angry, disappointed clutches of their father (if indeed they do). Anyone who cares about literature, about family, about life in these United States, should read this novel.

I looked up this book, in hopes someone else had reviewed it--and I could get a better idea where the author was trying to take this novel. It was hard to make head nor tails of it--the author switched for each chapter to a different character in the story--three children--a boy and two older sisters--and a step-mother. As near as could be discerned, it was a most dysfuntional family--father a misfit and ne'er do well, and a philanderer. The step-mom was neurotic and failed in her attempts to engage the girls. The older girl was either bright or retarded--couldn't figure out which--the younger daughter either obsessed with or repelled by sex, and the poor small boy couldn't figure anything out. Would just love someone else to write in about this book, maybe give me some clues to see through the obscure writing style. Can't believe the author is a "prize winning" writer.
