Other Desert Cities

July 3, 2012

Other Desert Cities tells the story of a family where secrets are currency and everyone is rich. Brooke Wyeth, a once promising young novelist, returns home after a six-year absence to celebrate Christmas in Palm Springs with her parents, former members of Reagan’s inner circle, plus her brother and her aunt. The festivities are short-lived, however, when Brooke announces that she is about to publish a memoir dredging up a pivotal and tragic event in the family’s history – a wound that her parents don’t want reopened.
