Cardinal Court is work of comic fiction that examines the social customs of a particular time and place – Marin County California, the early 1960s.
In sleepy Marin County, a new development on the outskirts of town is born and a plush golf course comes to life. Brown mega-mansions pop up randomly around its green edge and two “experimental homes” appear in the hills above.
An equally experimental string of 1440 square feet, two-story townhouses form a lazy semicircle around the 11th hole. They are condominium units – a first anywhere outside of Hawaii – and soon are filled with a restless mix of middle-class suburban pioneers.
The women of the book live in a world of koffee klatches and domestic conspiracies. The future is bearing down on the residents of Cardinal Court, and only some of them know it.
