Some brief overview of book

Winner of the Library of Virginia's Emyl Jenkins Sexton Literary Award for Fiction! "A brilliantly moving and unforgettable novel." - Jill McCorkle, author of Life After Life Janet Peerys first novel, The River Beyond the World, was a National Book Award finalist in 1996. Acclaimed for her gorgeous writing and clear-eyed gaze into the hearts of people, Peery now returns with her second novel, The Exact Nature of Our Wrongs.

On a summer evening in the blue-collar town of Amicus, Kansas, the Campbell family gathers for a birthday dinner for their ailing patriarch, retired judge Abel Campbell, prepared and hosted by their still-hale mother Hattie. But when Billy, the youngest siblingwith a history of addiction, grand ideas, and misdemeanorspasses out in his devils food cake, the family takes up the unfinished business of Billys sobriety. Billys wayward adventures have too long consumed their lives, in particular Hatties, who has enabled his transgressions while trying to save him from Abels disappointment.

As the older childrenDoro, Jesse, ClairBell, and Gideoncontend with their own troubles, they compete for the approval of the elderly parents they adore, but cant quite forgive. With knowing humor and sure-handed storytelling, Janet Peery reveals a family at its best and worst, with old wounds and new, its fractures and feuds, and yet its unbreakable bonds.
