Why to throw it in your beach bag
: Described as a "family tragicomedy," this novel reunites estranged siblings Richard and Angela for a week at a vacation home during an already turbulent time in their family. Told through the point of views of eight family members over the course of seven days, this story from the author of "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time" is just sudsy enough for a beach-read, with enough emotional resonance to keep you up reading long after bedtime.
