A Friend of the Family


Product Description
Product Details


There are grave consequences when Pete Dizinoff, a successful doctor, tries to keep his son from being seduced by Laura, a possible murderess and the daughter of Pete's best friend. Grodstein's superb second novel is a deft portrayal of suburban life, and Adamson more than does justice to the fine material in his tour-de-force performance. With his ability to shift from pathos to restraint, he creates realistically layered characters that grip readers from the start and linger long after the finish. An Algonquin hardcover (Reviews, Jul. 6). (Nov.) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

"Horrifyingly plausible and deeply poignant, "A Friend of the Family" will leave you shaken and chastened and grateful for the warning. --"The Washington Post Book World"
