Listening to Stephen Hoye reading ROCOCO is like eating lemon merinque pie--its light, frothy, scrumptious descriptions are balanced by a tart account of an extended Italian-American family. Living in northern New Jersey, they laugh, love, scheme, and yell as they struggle to balance cherished traditions with the new cultural order of all things, from hairdos and clothing styles to the parish church. Hoye's sensitive delivery of architectural and interior design descriptions will cause listeners to yearn to redo every living space NOW--and to cherish these memorable and captivating characters, who are blessed with good and generous hearts and strong family bonds.
