Description

A steely-eyed feminist, multi-generational novel, Foundations is told in three parts following the lives of three women — a housewife, a Hollywood actress, and a reality TV show contestant — all living in the same Dallas house in different eras, whose experiences parallel the history of women’s rights struggles in the American south.

“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

WHAT THEY'RE SAYING

Was loneliness an emergency?” Abigail Stewart asks in this novel, rich in atmosphere and detail. It certainly becomes one for the women in Foundations, paradoxically connecting a searching 1950s housewife, an aging actress in the 1980s, and a young home renovator in the present day. 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
