Bargain Book Copy
Also available as Scratch & Dent for $3.19 USD
At a suburban barbecue, a man slaps a child who is not his own. The reverberation from the slap are far-reaching, affecting the marriages and friendships of all those who witness it. Viewed through the eyes of eight different characters, the slap and the ensuing emotional maelstrom become catalysts for a journey into modern family life: children coming of age, marriages teeter on the brink, and midlife crises erupt. What unfolds is a powerful and haunting novel about love, sex, marriage, and the fury and intensity that family can arouse.
