Description

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 Dayweaves 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 journeyof two people searching for a future in the ruin of their past. Father's Dayis a meditation on the quiet, sublime power of compassion, and the beauty of simple, everyday things—abreakthrough work from one of our most gifted chroniclers of the human heart.
