Death and the Butterfly - A Novel
For fans of Cristina Garca, Joan Silber, Michael Ondaatje, Amor Towles, Pete Fromm, or Alice McDermott
With the sweeping, personalized historical tone of DOWNTON ABBEY, and the heart and humanity of THIS IS US
A sweeping novel of the 20th and early days of the 21st century, spanning the London Blitz to a Montana university campus struggling to understand 9/11 as it unfolds, 1980s Toronto to a cross-country road trip ending in Chile in homage to Pablo Neruda
Inspired in part by the author's mother’s experiences as a young girl in London during WWII and Hester's experiences as a 31-year old paperboy during the Reagan recession.
A moving exploration of how we are haunted by our loved ones, our grief, and our own past decisions. Death and the Butterfly is a complex and magnificent piece of writing
