In Trouble

By Ellen Levine Literary Agency

Noted author and researcher Ellen Levine turns her attention to the late 1950s, a time of great political and sexual upheaval. Sound familiar?

In Trouble is a work of historical fiction, combining McCarthy-era politics with pre-sexual revolution sexual repression. Briefly, two 1950s teens in New York deal in very different ways with the consequences of unplanned pregnancies. One's family is very conservative and Catholic; the other's father just came back from serving a year in prison for refusing to name names.

  • Intriguing and somewhat edgy historical fiction.
  • Follow up to a strong first novel.
  • Ellen Levine is a name
