downloadChip Cheek & Cape May at Chevalier’s Bookstore

Join us to hear Chip Cheek, author of Cape May: A Novl, present and discuss his debut. In this mesmerizing story the author explores the social and sexual mores of 1950s America through the eyes of a newly married couple from the genteel south, corrupted by sophisticated New England urbanites.

In late September, 1957, Henry and Effie, very young newlyweds from Georgia, arrive in Cape May, New Jersey for their honeymoon only to find the town is deserted. Then they meet a glamorous set of people who sweep them up into their drama. The empty beach town becomes their playground, and the couple slips from innocence into betrayal, with irrevocable consequences. Erotic and moving, this novel is about marriage, love and sexuality, and the lifelong repercussions they reap.
