9780099444978: More Than Enough

After a gang of neighborhood boys attacks Steven and his sister, Jenny, the Parkers are doing very well on the resulting settlement money. The family's dream of success in their new home of Salt Lake City seems fulfilled. But their period of high living soon ends, and each family member grasps at what he or she wants most.

Fourteen-year-old Jenny longs for normalcy, a state she tries to find in her Mormon friends' religion. Steven's father clings to his desire for affluence, even as his more practical wife tires of his dreams. For Steven, nothing is more important than keeping his teetering family together.

More Than Enough is a breathtaking dissection of human behavior and the American Dream. In it the break-up of a very ordinary family becomes utterly heart breaking. A novel that is as powerful in its dismantling of unremarkable lives as Andre Dubus III's House of Sand and Fog.

Review:

"Admirable...Brilliant...Fulton is wincingly sharp on female materialism... [The characters] are drawn with emotional exactitude and profound tenderness" ( Daily Telegraph)

"Make no mistake, this is one of the finest debuts in years. It is a treasure of a debut, beautifully written, a humane reminder that money is not everything despite the message behind the American Dream" ( Sunday Tribune)

"A heartbreaking story of shattered dreams. A promising, emotionally-charged first novel" ( Big Issue)

"A rigorous portrayal of the contemporary family, More Than Enough is riveting in its emotional acuity and unflinching honesty" ( Peter Ho Davies)

"Fulton pins his characters painfully and honestly to the page" ( Guardian)

From the Publisher:

A stunning portrayal of the break-up of a marriage and the collapse of a family; a powerful story of ordinary people in the tradition of Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman.
