Judith Laura

Judith Laura is author of three books. Her latest, THREE PART INVENTION, is her first novel. A mainstream novel with just a touch of magic realism, THREE PART INVENTION, spotlights the mother-daughter relationship as well as music-from classical to rock-and ethnic tensions. The book, set in New York, west central New Jersey, southeastern Ohio, and Denver, focuses on three very different, yet related, women: Alice, daughter of Eastern-European Jewish immigrants to the U.S., who marries just before World War II and mixes parenting with piano-teaching; Alice's daughter, Beth, who rebels against her mother's music and religion, develops her art talents, and takes part in the protest movements of the 1960s and 70s; and Beth's daughter, Alexis, who, as the novel moves into the 1980s and 90s, overcomes learning disabilities in an unexpected way.
