The Art of Keeping Cool


It’s World War II, and fear permeates the Rhode Islandcoastal town where Robert, his mother, and sister are living out the war withhis paternal grandparents. It is fear of Nazi submarines offshore; fear ofAbel Hoffman, a German artist living reclusively outside of town; and forRobert, a more personal fear, of his hot-tempered, controlling grandfather.

As Robert watches the townspeople’s hostility towardHoffman build, he worries about the friendship that his sensitive cousin Elliothas with the artist. And he wonders more and more about the family secreteveryone seems to be keeping from him—a secret involving Robert’s father, abomber pilot in Europe. Will Elliot’s ability to detach himself from theturmoil around him be enough to sustain him when prejudice and suspicions eruptinto violence? And can Robert find his own way to deal with the shocking truthabout his family’s past?
