Capture the Flag

A Novel

CAPTURE THE FLAG tells the fascinating story of one girl's struggle through adolescence as the once-clear lines between parenthood and childhood become blurred. Dividing their time between New York City and upstate New York, two privileged families find their lives arranged around an annual game of 'capture the flag'. Designed to test strategy and military prowess, the game becomes a test of interpersonal relationships as well, as young Annie strives to keep her own family and friends intact as her nucleur family disintegrates. Coping with sexual ambiguity and what it means to be a child of the Beat generation, Annie tries to make sense of the world as the adults around her seem to break all the rules.

Shedding light on the traditions particular to elite society in the 1970s, CAPTURE THE FLAG is a portrait of the children of sophisticated New Yorkers on their journey to adulthood.
