Description:
Short-listed for the National Book Award for Fiction Publisher's Weekly Best Book of 2015 New York Times Editors' Choice 2015 The Turners have lived on Yarrow Street for over fifty years. Their house has seen thirteen children grown and gone - and some returned; it has seen the arrival of grandchildren, the fall of Detroit's East Side, the loss of a father. Despite abandoned lots, an embattled city, and the inevitable shift outward to the suburbs, the house still stands. But now, as ailing matriarch Viola finds herself forced to leave her home and move in with her eldest son, the family discovers that the house is worth just a tenth of its mortgage. The Turner children are called home to decide its fate and to reckon with how each of their pasts haunt - and shape - their family's future. The Turner House brings us a colourful, complicated brood full of love and pride, sacrifice and unlikely inheritances. It's a striking examination of the price we pay for our dreams and futures, and the ways in which our families bring us home. 'An expansive and ambitious novel that descends through the generations of one family's history to achieve real poignancy and power.' T.C. Boyle 'An engrossing and remarkably mature first ...Flournoy provides the feeling of knowing a family from the inside out, as we would wish to know our own.' New York Times Book Review 'Encompassing a multitude of themes, including aging and parenthood, this is a compelling read that is funny and moving in equal measure.' Booklist, starred review
