A steely-eyed, feminist, multi-generational novel, Foundations is told in three parts following the lives of three women all living in the same Dallas house in different eras, whose experiences parallel the history of women's rights struggles in the American south.
The drink I chose to represent Foundations is an extra dry vodka martini with a twist. It encapsulates the effortlessly chic food and drink pairings of Bunny, the Hollywood glamour of Jessica, and it pairs well with fermented food, which I think Amanda would appreciate, or perhaps not.
"I devoured the hell out of this wonderful novel about
three different women in the same house across the decades, dealing with
unhappiness and doubt in their own, often wild ways. I loved the careful,
compassionate way Stewart crafted these characters - it drew me in completely
to their stories."
— Amber Sparks, author of And I Do Not Forgive You
"Was loneliness an emergency?" Abigail Stewart asks in this novel, rich in atmosphere and detail... As Stewart explores repetitions and recurrences over time, you keenly care about these characters who are linked by one particular house that may or may not be able to contain their desires and their dreams." — Deborah Shapiro, author of Consolation
