Product description


Powerful and moving . . . Mary Beth Keane is a writer of extraordinary depth, feeling and wit. Readers will love this book, as I did (Meg Wolitzer, bestselling author of The Female Persuasion)

Keane takes on one of the most difficult problems in fiction - how to write about human decency . . . a compelling case for compassion over blame, understanding over grudge, and the resilience of hearts that can accept the contradictions of love (Louise Erdrich, National book award winning author of The Round House)

Leaves one shaking one's head in frank admiration. A triumph (Matthew Thomas, bestselling author of We Are Not Ourselves)

Displaying impressive reach . . . Keane delivers an epic of domestic emotional turmoil . . . Tender and patient, the novel avoids excessive sweetness while planting itself deep in the soil of commitment and attachment. Graceful and mature. A solidly satisfying, immersive read (Kirkus, starred review)

An immersive read about family secrets and redemption (Alice O'Keefe Editor's Choice, Bookseller)

Stunning! An absolutely brilliant, gorgeously-written novel by a fearless writer. Ask Again, Yes is both haunting and hopeful, like life itself. It's the consummate epic family story, one I can't stop thinking and talking about. A must-read for our time (Lisa Taddeo, author of Three Women)

A beautiful novel, bursting at the seams with empathy (Elle)

A rare example of propulsive storytelling infused with profound insights about blame, forgiveness and abiding love (People)

Book Description

A gripping and compassionate family drama set between neighbours in suburban New York.
