In high school I was in a class called Creative Writing The teacher assigned students to write a ten page descriptive essay about a particular subject periodically such as describing the beginning of autumn or about a domestic scene of preparing and eating food in a kitchen The teacher wanted details of surroundings activities sights and sounds and smells of everything in the environment A Crime in the Neighborhood by Suzanne Berne reminded me of that English writing class Berne has written a novel about a 1972 suburban neighborhood called Spring Hill She beautifully describes the green lawn and Saturday barbecue environment the customary routines of family life as it was in the 1970 s dad works mom stays home raising the kids and the expected social life of public pleasantries between neighbors Doors are kept unlocked or keys are hidden under doormats and flower pots Kids are peddling around on Schwinn bicycles all day everywhere when not in school Dogs bark and cats stare placidly out at passerbys from interior windows Everyone keeps a pitcher of lemonade cold in the refrigerator and coffee hot for neighbors casually dropping by These middle class routines are described through the eyes of the narrator Marsha when she was eight years old looking back on her childhood The feeling Marsha has for her early life begins as one of edenic nostalgia but it slowly becomes poisoned drop by drop by unexpected changes she doesn t fully understand or like During a homecooked dinner Marsha s mother Lois explodes with an unusual fury towards her husband Marsha s dad is a real estate salesman He also is an adulterer He is having an affair with Ada the youngest of Lois s three sisters After the violent dish smashing dinner where Marsha s mother informed Marsha s dad the marriage is done he moves out to a motel and eventually runs off with Ada to Canada Lois tries to find work eventually selling magazines by phoning from her kitchen table in the afternoons She dresses in suits in the morning to look for work Meanwhile the twins Steven and Julie fifteen year olds and Marsha s siblings are moving beyond Marsha s reach and understanding in their activities Their parents separation brought the twins closer to each other and they avoid Marsha and Marsha snoops in their rooms discovering naked pictures hidden in their bedrooms They also took their mother s side Marsha vaguely realizes she blames her mother and wants her dad back She feels lonely ignored and isolated the longer her dad stays away The daily rhythms to which she is accustomed are gone Mom is selling the house too and economising The twins no longer are receiving an allowanceWhen a local twelve year old boy s body is discovered the neighborhood becomes scary for the first time to the adults Marsha knew Boyd Ellison She didn t like him as she thought him a bully She doesn t fully understand the adults in their feelings of increased nervousness but she feels the increasing edginess President Nixon and Watergate are dominating the TV news and adult conversations all around her as well usually after they talk about the rape and murder of Boyd Then Marsha is shocked when her mother seems to be flirting with the new neighbor Mr Green He isn t particularly attractive or adept at socializing He is single and the neighbors do not understand a single man moving into their neighborhood He is uiet and keeps to himself But when Marsha s mother calls out to Mr Green working in his yard and is obviously trying to be friends Marsha is angry and fearful though she doesn t know why So When detectives come around talking to everybody in the neighborhood she pointedly tells them no one likes Mr Green Marsha has been keeping a journal of sorts noting everyone s movements and writing down everything she spots in yards or of cars driving by for weeks after reading Sherlock Holmes stories She has had nothing to do but sit on her porch watching or sneaking around listening to conversations from behind doors or from picking up the phone extension in her house Other than seeing her brother masturbating which she didn t understand was happening there is nothing in her notebook to indict anyone However everybody is VERY nervousand Marsha continues to build on her dislike of Mr Green adding lies and liesOh oh A Crime in the Neighborhood would have worked better for me if it had been a novella But the writing is exuisitely evocative The world of the American middle class suburb in the 1970 s is as accurately portrayed as it is described richly in detail Marsha even though she keeps to the viewpoint of herself as a naive angry child narrates the story with an underlying awareness of her personal responsibility in causing a great deal of unpleasantness The psychological interplay and undertow between Marsha and her mother and between Marsha and her siblings was authentic to me However this literary novel is about exploring the mystery of a young child s pain in experiencing the unwelcome changes to her life than it is about a murder mystery Mystery genre fans will be bored with the book
