WEDNESDAY'S CHILD

Maine Writers and Publisher's Award winning creative nonfiction memoir about growing up Franco-American in Waterville, ME.  This book is taught in many college/university courses throughout the United States.

Rhea Cote Robbins' Wednesday's Child is beautiful stuff, a defiant poignant memoir that transcends the personal. It is an important book not only for its immediate content, for the experience of life within its covers, but because it gives us a glimpse of the almost unmined Golconda of literary source material in Franco-American lives. -- E. Annie Proulx

Against the more familiar observations of the small-town lifer the urban refugee, Rhea Cote Robbins' syncopations stood out, at once unique connected to a vibrant hardscrabble culture. This is a sensuous recollection made urgent by a pending medical diagnosis, the result is an energetic, poignant, revelatory memoir. ...Wednesday's Child is astir in every sentence. -- Sven Birkerts

Wednesday's Child is a dark, dream-like meditation on fragility survival, of the body from cancer of the Franco-American community from its inheritance of paroissial piety, social marginality, relentless poverty. If your roots are in that community, there is much to recognize confirm; if not, there is much to learn remember. -- Clark Blaise
