Judith Rossner's extraordinary new novel revolves around Nell, Louisa, Sonny and Liane--four daughters in a big, brawling, competitive, eccentric family headed by roguish movie mogul Sam Pearlstein. A Hollywood producer and womanizer of infinate charm, Sam is the fierce object of his daughters' affection--the children of his marriages to three wildly different wives. HIS LITTLE WOMEN is the unforgettable story of fantasy movieland childhoods, a far-flung family's continual crises, and the most suprising love affair an exceptional father could bequeath a devoted daughter. It is Judith Rossner's most fascinating and accomplished novel yet. By the author of AUGUST, LOOKING FOR MR GOODBAR and others.
