Tuesday Nights in 1980

Tuesday Nights in 1980 by Molly Prentiss takes on Argentina’s dirty war and the grittiness of New York’s SoHo neighborhood in the 1980’s as the main plot points. Centering on the linked lives of a naïve young Midwestern woman, a synesthetic art critic and a passionate Argentinian painter it revolves around the energy generated both by artists and those who support them. The main characters ultimately contend with tragic losses that threaten to derail their lives. The author is an accomplished writer, effectively recreating a unique atmosphere and maturing characters you care about.
