G.P. Putnam's Sons,
Harry Buelle awakes confused one morning in his bathtub. His stepmother phones him, complaining that his father, a successful-and cantankerous-elderly playwright, has stopped taking his heart medicine. Harry has never heard her sound so tired, and, with his own life in shambles, agrees to join his parents-and his sister and her husband-at their Southern beach house retreat. Having the whole family together, cooped up in the same space, gives rise to old tensions and battles-the ache of childhood disappointments, the hurtful truth of parental expectations. But underneath the surface of a ritual family weekend lies a web of bitter secrets-and a staggering revelation. In taut, sparse, but never less than lyrical prose that mirrors the restraint and quiet desperation of its inhabitants, The Floodmakers delivers a carefully drawn glimpse into the complexities and frailties of family.
