Publisher's Summary

A.M. Homes is acclaimed for her unnerving looks at suburban life in such searing works as The Safety of Objects, Jack, and Music for Torching. May We Be Forgiven, a darkly comic novel of 21st-century domestic life, stars Harold Silver, a historian who's always been jealous of his successful brother, George. But when the hot-tempered George is institutionalized for committing a violent act, Harold finds himself comforting his brother's wife and children. What follows is a scathing examination of a family so fractured it may never be whole again.

Give this one a try!

I used a credit on this book despite some of the negative reviews. I appreciated the fact that it kept my attention throughout. I think the review that mentioned the sexual content only listened to the beginning and gave up on the book. I thought it was interesting that one negative review assumed that the author was a man, when in fact A. M. Homes is apparently a woman. The story all tied together, and I appreciated how Harry came along in his journey to understand some things about his life and his view of family. It was definitely outlandish at times, but in a charming way. I also thought Andy Paris did a great job with the narration.

This is a powerful book.

Riveting. Clever. Wry humour and such darkness. I love the constant interruptions that take the lead from one drama to the next. Well worth the listen.
