Our Next-Door Neighbors

Belle K. Maniates

The only problem that clouds Lucien and Silvia Wade's calm, comfortable life is that Lucien wants children and Silvia does not. When the wild Polydore children-Ptolemy, Pythagoras, Emerald, Demetrius, and Diogenes-move in next door, however, chaos follows and the Wades each reconsider their position. In Our Next-Door Neighbors Michigan author Belle K. Maniates hilariously explores middle-class life in early twentieth-century America and questions what the typical American family should look like.
