Father's Day

About the Book

Father's Day

When devastating news shatters the life of six-year-old Harvey, she finds herself in the care of a veteran social worker, Wanda, and alone in the world save for one relative she has never met --- a disabled felon, haunted by a violent past he can't escape.

Moving between past and present, FATHER'S DAY weaves together the story of Harvey’s childhood on Long Island and her life as a young woman in Paris. Written in raw, spare prose that personifies the characters, this novel is the journey of two people searching for a future in the ruin of their past.

FATHER'S DAY is a meditation on the quiet, sublime power of compassion, and the beauty of simple, everyday things --- a breakthrough work from one of our most gifted chroniclers of the human heart.
