The acclaimed author of American Rust returns with The Son: an epic, multigenerational saga of power, blood, and land that follows the rise of one unforgettable Texas family from the Comanche raids of the 1800s to the border raids of the early 1900s to the oil booms of the 20th century.
“[Meyer is] a gifted new writer—a writer who understands how place and personality and circumstance can converge to create the perfect storm of tragedy." —Michiko Kakutani, New York Times
We are big fans of Van Booy’s previous book, Everything Beautiful Began After, and could not wait to read his new novel. We are thrilled to say that we love it! Reminiscent of Atonement, this tale of war and love and quiet connection is absolutely beautiful.
“If F. Scott Fitzgerald and Marguerite Duras had had a son, he would be Simon Van Booy; this is a truly special writer who does things with abstract language that is so evocative and original your breath literally catches in your chest.” —Andre Dubus III
Greer (Confessions of Max Tivoli) brings us a wonderfully romantic story of a woman who has the chance to experience alternate lives in three different eras. “The premise of this novel isn’t that a woman travels through time: it’s that ‘the impossible happens once to each of us’… What this wonderful novel teaches us is how magic works.” —John Irving.
