Adult Fiction PACKER
Summary: From the best-selling author of Songs Without Words and The Dive from Clausen's Pier, her strongest work yet-a collection of burnished, impossible-to-put down narratives framed by two stunning, linked novellas. A wife struggles to make sense of her husband's sudden disappearance. A mother mourns her teenage son through the music collection he left behind. A woman shepherds her estranged parents through her brother's wedding and reflects on the year her family collapsed. A young man comes to grips with the joy-and vulnerability-of impending fatherhood. And, in the masterly opening novella, two teenagers from very different families-one a tightly knit foursome, the other a father and son who share little more than having been abandoned by the same woman-forge a sustaining friendship, only to discover the disruptive and unsettling power of sex. Swim Back to Meshow cases one of our most vibrant talents at the height of her powers-a book that belongs beside Elizabeth Strout's Olive Kitteridge and Amy Bloom's Where the God of Love Hangs Out. From the Hardcover edition.
