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.

Could not get through half of the book. Author always goes for the cheap shock. When a character takes a dump in the middle of a room, it is time to stop reading and put the bomb down.
