9780099541844: That Old Cape Magic

Jack and Joy Griffin are back on Cape Cod - where they spent their hope-filled honeymoon - for a wedding. Cracks are begining to show in Jack's peaceful family life and thirty-four year marriage. He's driving round with his father's ashes in an urn in the boot of his car, haunted by memories of bittersweet family holidays spent at the Cape, while his acerbic mother is very much alive and always on his mobile. He's spent a lifetime trying to be happier than his parents, but has he succeeded?

A year later, at a second wedding, Jack has a second urn in the car, and his life is starting to unravel.

Review:

"The remarkable thing about this novel is its resemblance to real life. Russo creates a family that is utterly recognisable and unique... superb" ( The Times)

"Russo meditates on memory, ageing, inheritance, marriage, desire and the meaning of happiness... Written with humour and assurance" ( Guardian)

"Russo brings a familiar story to life with wit, elegance, deftness and empathy" ( Sunday Times)

"A novel for people who are terrified of becoming their parents... A dyspeptic romantic comedy... [And] an utterly charming novel. If you always cry at weddings, you'll cry at this - and laugh, too" ( Washington Post)

"Russo has a knack for capturing the most intimate details in the lives of ordinary people" ( Chicago Tribune)

Book Description:

A funny, bittersweet novel about two weddings and a divorce, parents, family myth and memory, by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Empire Falls.
