Meet Samuel: stalled writer, bored teacher at a local college, obsessive player of online video games. He hasn't seen his mother, Faye, in decades, not since she abandoned her family when he was a boy. Now she has suddenly reappeared, having committed an absurd politically motivated crime that electrifies the nightly news, beguiles the Internet, and inflames a divided America. The media paints Faye as a radical hippie with a sordid past, but as far as Samuel knows, his mother was an ordinary girl who married her high school sweetheart.

Wow....amazing.., refreshingly different,; totally engaging and inspiring... A truly wonderful depiction of humanity with all its failings through famiky generations,; yet ultimately optimistic and hopeful for the future... Cannot wait for Nathan Hill's 2nd novel...
