· Waiting to Surface Emily Listfield (’74). In this novelized memoir, a woman copes with the mysterious disappearance of her husband, who took a late-night walk on a Miami beach and never returned. Not only does Emily’s novel explore the poignant plight of a mother having to help her young daughter deal with the loss of a beloved father who simply vanished and could be dead or alive, it lifts the curtain on the trendy and brutally competitive world of women’s magazines. The husband had been a promising sculptor. His presumed widow finds solace in gathering up the art that remains.
