9780156032773: We're in Trouble

'When you're reading these stories, you forget to breathe' Nick Hornby A young boy is driven through the night across the heartlands of America in the hands of a man who may or may not be his father. A musician suddenly finds himself the legal guardian of his best friend's three-year-old son. A law-enforcement officer recalls the murder, many years before, of a married woman with whom he was having an affair. A woman in Europe waits for news of her husband's latest death-defying mountain climb ...Shocking, sophisticated, utterly compelling and unforgettable, We're In Trouble shows ordinary people struggling to cope with what life throws at them. We see love being tested by death, and innocence and experience colliding in moments of revelation. And throughout this exceptional debut, we are made to feel the truth of his characters' lives as Coake transforms them into cathartic art.

[Coake] is wildly engaging as he explores one theme--love in the face of harrowing death (or near-death)--from seemingly every angle. A-."--"Entertainment Weekly"
