Larks Will Sing

A novel by

Lark City . . . a strange assortment of people in a vast apartment complex, each in his own way struggling to remain involved and useful in the face of enforced retirement. Arthur Crane, trapped with a sexless wife and craving affection. Stephanie Upshaw, a retired schoolteacher who has never known a man's caress. Alan Markel, who never should have stopped being a doctor. The naval hero who refights his war adventures in taverns.

"They're all in the same boat," Vincent Gallo says to Sam Kendall, Lark City's harassed manager, " and you'd think they would try to make this last voyage together a pleasant one." Sam's job is to see that they do, to the best of his ability, and his daughter Lee is there to help him. But along with Lee Kendall and her friends are the less predictable young people of her bewildering generation--the hippies and beatniks and flower children, and above all the rioters who bring this stirring novel to a frightening climax and provide the assorted residents of Lark with an opportunity to see themselves as they really are.

Larks Will Sing, though filled with action and surprises, is perhaps Hugh Cave's most provocative novel to date. Enforced retirement in today's swift world is creating a whole host of new problems. Mr. Cave explores some of them and comes up with startling answers.
