“Avis Muir is an architect in the kitchen, who builds acclaimed pastries from flours and fondants and candied decorations. Her husband, Brian, is a lawyer for one of the most respected developers in Miami, who helps create a new international hub of wealth and opulence. So why have they had so much trouble constructing a nuclear family? Abu-Jaber's novel of family dysfunction, cultural adaptation, and human resilience in the face of tragedy ponders the joys and limitations of family, friendship, and career with powerful results.”
-- Daniel Goldin, Boswell Book Company, Milwaukee, WI


Description
This multilayered novel about a family that comes apart at the seams and finds its way together again is totally involving and deeply satisfying, a glorious feast of a book.
