From the author of the New York Times bestseller City on FireA Granta Best of Young American Novelist 2017 'A young author of boundless and unflagging talents' New York TimesWe can all agree on this much, Marnie thought- nobody saw the Hungate divorce coming. In the privacy of her own mind, she saw them as the last of a dying breed, the Great American Family.Two families - the Hungates and the Harrisons - live side by side in Long Island, New York. They lead charmed lives- good jobs in the city, weekends by the pool, cheerleading practice after school and backyard barbecues in the summer. But within these lives lie hundreds of little deceptions.Told through a mix of photographs and words, this is a dazzlingly inventive depiction of two families falling apart and coming together and the thousand different truths of the American Dream.
