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.
