Summary
MODERN & CONTEMPORARY FICTION (POST C 1945). As Margot Desouche, the matriarch of a powerful St. Louis family, succumbs to cancer, she takes a keen interest in her hospice nurse, Lee Bridger, much to the consternation of her children. Lee is drawn to Margot, too, but between her boyfriend who keeps trying to "save" St. Louis, the journalist who literally washes up on the city's levee, and her daughter, a some-time actress and full-time con artist, Lee has her own troubles. Steven Clark paints a poignant portrait of the often crazy, always complicated lives an "average" family. The St. Louisans is at once a funny and sad study of human and urban death and renewal that evokes the work of Tennessee Williams and Sara Teasdale, two St. Louisans who wanted to be buried at sea but who never got their wish
