Description

A READ WITH JENNA - TODAY SHOW BOOK CLUB PICK "A richly observed novel, both ambitious and welcoming."-Meg Wolitzer An Instant New York Times Bestseller NAMED A BEST BOOK OF THE MONTH BY: Goodreads - Lithub - Refinery29 - InStyle - HelloGiggles - Real Simple - Parade - PureWow - Apple Books - Bustle "Conklin examines her characters' lives with generosity and an unflinching eye for the complexities of love and family...?ans of Jonathan Franzen's The Corrections will find similar pleasures in the intelligence and empathy on display here."-USA Today (four stars) When the renowned poet Fiona Skinner is asked about the inspiration behind her iconic work, The Love Poem, she tells her audience a story about her family and a betrayal that reverberates through time. It begins in a big yellow house with a funeral, an iron poker, and a brief variation forever known as the Pause: a free and feral summer in a middle-class Connecticut town. Caught between the predictable life they once led and an uncertain future that stretches before them, the Skinner siblings-fierce Renee, sensitive Caroline, golden boy Joe and watchful Fiona-emerge from the Pause staunchly loyal and deeply connected. Two decades later, the siblings find themselves once again confronted with a family crisis that tests the strength of these bonds and forces them to question the life choices they've made and ask what, exactly, they will do for love. A sweeping yet intimate epic about one American family, The Last Romantics is an unforgettable exploration of the ties that bind us together, the responsibilities we embrace and the duties we resent, and how we can lose-and sometimes rescue-the ones we love. A novel that pierces the heart and lingers in the mind, it is also a beautiful meditation on the power of stories-how they navigate us through difficult times, help us understand the past, and point the way toward our future.
