Product Synopsis

Summer in Red Hook, Brooklyn, a blue collar neighborhood where hipster gourmet supermarkets push against tired housing projects, and the East River opens into the bay. Bored and listless, fifteen-year-old June and Val are looking for some fun. Forget the boys, the bottles, the coded whistles. Val wants to do something wild and a little crazy: take a raft out onto the bay. But out on the water, as the bright light of day gives way to darkness, the girls disappear. Only Val will survive, washed ashore semi-conscious in the weeds. June's shocking disappearance will reverberate in the lives of a diverse cast of Red Hook residents. Fadi, the Lebanese bodega owner, trolls for information about the crime. Cree, just beginning to pull it together after his father's murder, unwittingly makes himself the chief suspect - although an elusive guardian seems to have other plans for him. As Val emerges from the shadow of her missing friend, her teacher Jonathan, Juilliard drop-out and barfly, will be forced to confront a past riddled with tragic sins of omission. In VISITATION STREET, Ivy Pochoda combines intensely vivid prose with breathtaking psychological insight to explore a cast of solitary souls, pulled by family, love, and betrayal, who yearn for a chance to escape, no matter the cost.

Staff Choice

Visitation street by Ivy Pochoda had me in its grip right from the first page. It's a dark, intense story of grief, mystery, and loss of innocence, and it starts with a beautifully atmospheric evocation of a neighbourhood in a heatwave: 'Summer is everybody else's party. It belongs to the recently arrived hipsters in their beat-up sneakers and paint-splattered jeans. It belongs to Puerto Rican families with foil trays of meat, sending charcoal smoke signals into the air, even to the old men...watching the neighbourhood pass them by.' Pochoda tells the story of two teenaged girls, by turns bored with the prospect of endless scorching days stretching ahead of them, and excited about the potential of life that they're just beginning to grasp. Their attempt to escape the heat of a New York summer with a late night trip on an inflatable raft leads, almost inevitably, to tragedy, and sets in motion a summer of and revelation and breakdown. - Heather
