Summary
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
Summary
Moving between past and present, an unforgettable novel of loss and redemption weaves together the story of Harvey's childhood with her Uncle Jason, a disabled felon with a violent past who took her in after her parents died, and as a young woman in Paris as she awaits his arrival for a Father's Day visit in hopes to deepen their already strong bond
