Graham and Joanna Kornelsons’ life has all gone according to their plan. Graham a lawyer, and Joanna, a stay-at-home mom to her three children, live in the quaint town of Mountain City, Manitoba, enjoying a typical busy life together. Until one Sunday morning when Joanna finds their fourteen year old daughter, Ally, at the bottom of the staircase enduring an unexpected seizure. What happens to this family is as unpredictable as the diagnosis of epilepsy. The Kornelson family find themselves emotionally collapsing as they try to make sense of this untimely illness that has shattered their idyllic home life. Ally, who dreams of becoming a concert pianist, continues to suffer from seizures and endures the difficult experience of finding the right anti-seizure drugs. Twelve year old twins, Jack and Lydia, want to know that their family will be back to normal as Graham and Joanna can’t find balance between managing Ally’s medical changes and dealing with the crippling trauma that grips their family. Graham, who recently lost his dad to cancer, struggles to be the supportive husband and father for his suffering family. Joanna is desperate to cling to the easy life they once knew, but in the process alienates them all with her controlling and overprotective decisions. But over these difficult years, the Kornelson family turn to each other to find strength and renewal as they learn to pick up one another, as they all fall down.

I carried the bones of this story around for quite a few years before I finally stumbled upon its beating heart," explains the author. "In my head was the image of a doll house, huge and not quite right, and a woman searching desperately for something concealed inside. But I could never work a story around it that didn't seem twee. Doll houses, you know? "But then Emma and Holly appeared - trapped within their own fractured, futile relationship - and everything just, well, fell together. Beautifully. Awfully. And now I have a doll house story. Of a kind.

Recently widowed, Albert Schmidt has triumphantly rediscovered domestic bliss in the Hamptons with Carrie, the Puerto Rican waitress who is younger than his daughter. Schmidt is content with keeping his own hours and steering his own course, even as he becomes entertained--and increasingly ensnared-- by the odd billionaire Michael Mansour. Among Schmidt's other heartbreaks and delights is the scandal engulfing his detested son-in-law. Where will it all lead? Is Mansour a true friend or just a big cat playing with a WASP mouse? Can May and December remain on the same calendar as the sun sets? Through it all, one thing is clear: Schmidt has found a new life far beyond the deck chair. With the elegance and mordant wit readers have come to expect of him, Louis Begley has created a magnificent story of how virtue may be rewarded. BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Louis Begley's Memories of a Marriage.
