Product description


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)

The new Little Fires Everywhere . . . Exploring mental health, grief, forgiveness and love, this conjures up the work of Celeste Ng and Anne Tyler - and we can't give higher praise than that. The perfect summer read (Stylist)

Immersive and deeply moving (Anna Hope, author of Expectation)

A wonderful novel about a lifetime of love . . . Focusing on a small cast over several decades allows Keane to explore universal themes: marriage, family, betrayal and forgiveness. Above all, what is a good life well lived? (Daily Mail)

One of the most exceptional novels of the summer . . . Has the makings of a future classic. Keane's prose is spare and elegant and she writes about mental illness and alcholism with compassion. It's a remarkable achievement (Sunday Express)

Compelling . . . it is neighbourly conflict, not love, that drives this quietly devastating story . . . There are multiple twists skilfully delivered. The novel raises a series of profound questions . . . [and] as an exploration of parent-child relationships, the novel is both thoughtful and powerful (Hannah Beckerman, i news)

I absolutely adored Ask Again, Yes. I was only a few chapters in when I knew Mary Beth Keane was about to become one of my favourite authors. I'll read everything she writes (Liane Moriarty)

A pleasantly accessible novel that will be popular with book clubs . . . Keane is a nuanced observer (The Sunday Times)

A novel of great compassion and understanding . . . rich with story (John Boyne, Irish Times)

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)

Book Description

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