All Adults Here – Emma Straub
After Astrid Strick – a widowed, 68-year-old mother of three living in upstate New York – witnesses an accident she resolves to live more honestly, starting with the mistakes she made in raising her family.
But are her kids, tangled in their own messy adults lives, really ready to be treated like grown ups?
‘Literary sunshine’ – New York Times
The Dutch House – Ann Patchett
A STORY OF TWO SIBLINGS, THEIR CHILDHOOD HOME, AND A PAST THAT THEY CAN’T LET GO.
Like swallows, like salmon, we were the helpless captives of our migratory patterns. We pretended that what we had lost was the house, not our mother, not our father. We pretended that what we had lost had been taken from us by the person who still lived inside.
