In the twilight days of silent film, Isabel Maher renounces the glitter and glamour of Hollywood to pursue a life as a wife and mother, as her three children struggle against the lives she has scripted for them--Joe, a Jesuit priest; Rita, who runs off with a gangster who turns state's evidence; and Gemma, angry and ambitious, who pursues fame as a photographer. Maureen Howard deepens her inquiry into the meeting place of history and family in this stunning and accessible novel. Like Garbo, Isabel, now Bel, never fully articulates her reasons for leaving Hollywood. Howard spools out the perspectives of the four main players Bel's voice coming from beyond the grave , gradually revealing their secrets, passions and disappointments. Spine creases, wear to binding and pages from reading. The flickering seductions and distortions of private lives play out against the novel’s rich historical awareness. A darkly comic story of guilt, love, and forgiveness, The Silver Screen is luminous in its intelligence and empathy.

Joe, her doted-on favorite, a Jesuit priest troubled by his flawed past, is stunned when immediately following the funeral his younger sister Rita, long overlooked as a dumpy spinster, marries ex-mobster Manny Salgado and disappears with him into the Witness Protection Program. Maureen Howard has long enchanted her readers with an urgent history of our extraordinary life and times. Connecting readers with great books since 1972. Meticulous and graceful, though some may find the allusions, dense sentences, and sometimes-opaque narrative a touch rarefied. Now she is dead at 90 and her children are trying to break free of the lives she has dealt them. May contain limited notes, underlining or highlighting that does affect the text. Stodgy Rita has found late happiness with a gangster who has turned state's evidence.
