Sobre o livro
Set in Rome, Cape Cod, and Wisconsin over the course of the summer of 2009, and Rome during the spring of 1970,The Wanting Life tells the intertwined story of three members of the Novak family: Father Paul, a closeted gay Catholic priest whos dying of cancer and has secrets he desperately wants to share; Britta, his self-destructive sister and caretaker, whos struggling to find meaning in a world without her beloved husband; and Maura, Brittas daughtera thirty-nine-year-old artist whos facing a choice between her husband and two children, or the man she believes is her one, true love.
Featuring one of most unconventional love stories youll read this year,The Wanting Life is both a compulsively readable family drama about the toll that secrets and loyalty can take on us, and a gorgeous meditation on the comforts (and limits) of faith and intimacy that calls to mind novels like Marilynne RobinsonsHome, Alice McDermottsCharming Billy, and Julian BarnesThe Sense of an Ending.
