Product Overview

?Stunning. . . . Lean and supple, completely persuasive, full of nuanced turns, dead on about how people try to bind and repel each other at the same time.??The New York Times Book Review

?Evocative. . . . [A] powerful tale. . . . The characters stick with you.??USA Today

?Haunting. . . . A novel brimming with burning emotion.??Booklist

An emotionally charged story of passionate love, unfulfilled desire, and an American dream gone totally awry, Beverly Gologorsky?s poignant, unadorned novel lays bare the destructive impact of the Vietnam War on the wives, lovers, and children of veterans. This haunting story of devotion and loss will speak to anyone who has suffered the effects of an unwinnable war.

Beverly Gologorsky has been an activist in the women?s and peace movements since the 1960s. Her first novel,?The Things We Do to Make It Home, was a?New York Times?Notable Book of the Year, a?Los Angeles Times?Best Fiction selection, and a finalist for the Barnes and Noble Discover Great New Writers Award, when it was originally published in 1999. Her essays have appeared in?The Patriots: The Vietnam War Remembered from All Sides?and?The Friend Who Got Away: Twenty Women?s True-Life Tales of Friendships that Blew Up, Burned Out, or Faded Away. She has written for the?New York Times, the?Nation,?Newsweek, and theLos Angeles Times, among other publications.
