SLIDING is a touching and funny novel set in New York and Chicago in the mid-1980s. Friends since childhood, two attractive single women in their early thirties grapple with life’s problems and provide support for each other through visits and phone calls. Follow Daphne and Maggie through changing life seasons as they journey through marriage, children, divorce, wealth, alcoholism, friendship, truth and love. Whether you are already present for someone going through difficult times or simply want inspiration you’ll be carried right along as Foster treats these events with wit and wisdom to produce an entertaining yet cautionary tale.
Jane Foster strikes again with eloquence in Sliding. Her characters lay bare often hidden realities of living the high life in 1980s New York, performing in ways only a true insider would know. —Anne Yelland, co-author of ‘Boulevard Beausejour’
Perhaps more than anywhere else, New York has mood swings, from the buoyancy and optimism of the earlier 1980s, to a financial crash in 1987 and the anxiety that followed. Sliding is a warm and witty reminder of life there in the mid 1980s, indelibly catching this period in an extraordinary decade. —Lord Risby, British parliamentarian
What makes Sliding so special? As with fiction, it’s all about voice: that special magic that brings words to life. Jane has a voice many authors aspire to but few find. Her story offers a powerful message with a spark of hope, plenty of humor, and an abundance of inspiration. —Jim McGregor, MSW, author of The Tao of Recovery
