Synopsis: The novels of Gail Godwin are contemporary classics — evocative, powerfully affecting, beautifully crafted fiction alive with endearing, unforgettable characters. Her critically acclaimed work has placed her among the ranks of Eudora Welty, Pat Conroy, and Carson McCullers, firmly establishing Godwin as a Southern literary novelist for the ages. In A Southern Family, the celebrated author of A Mother and Two Daughters, The Finishing School, and Father Melancholy’s Daughter once again explores the shattering dynamics of parents’ relationships with their children and themselves. It is the story of the Quick family and the reunion that leads to tragedy — a masterful tale of anger and pain, of love and hatred, and of the understanding that ultimately heals.
