Description

“Knight has the rare power to make a setting breathe. . . . Authentic and intense.” — The New York Times Book Review
In the spirit of Truman Capote’s classic holiday book, A Christmas Memory , award-winning writer Michael Knight delivers a poignant meditation on loss, legacy, and love, at a particularly complicated time of year. In The Holiday Season , the Posey men are still figuring out how to be a family years after the death of the wife and mother who bound them together. As Thanksgiving nears, hairline fractures in the Poseys’ relationships finally splinter and crack over what should be, but never is, a simple question: where to spend the holidays. Patriarch Jeff wants everything to remain how it was when his wife was alive, but his oldest son thinks it’s time to move on and establish fresh traditions. Caught in the middle is younger son, Frank, a struggling actor who, as the conflict between his father and brother escalates, is finally forced to choose between them. The companion piece, Love at the End of the Year , is an intoxicating tale that weighs up love in its many forms over the course of a single, magical Alabama New Year’s Eve.
