Product description

Review

"Tara Conklin is a generous writer who deftly brings us into the world of this fictional family, an engrossing and vivid place where I was happy to stay. The Last Romantics is a richly observed novel, both ambitious and welcoming."--Meg Wolitzer

"Conklin examines her characters' lives with generosity and an unflinching eye for the complexities of love and family.... Fans of Jonathan Franzen's The Corrections will find similar pleasures in the intelligence and empathy on display here."--USA Today (four stars)

"Pick up The Last Romantics when you want to be swept into a fictional family....As the narrative traces [the Skinner siblings'] converging and diverging paths over the course of their lives--and promises made, kept, broken, changed--you'll fall deeper and deeper in."--Goop

"A modern epic...in the vein of Commonwealth, THE LAST ROMANTICS is a sweeping look at what binds families together."--Glamour

"Perfectly paced, affecting fiction."--Booklist

"An intimate, soul-searing examination of a modern family and the ties that bind, for better or worse."--Stefanie Hargreaves, Shelf Awareness Galley Love of the Week

"Intensely moving."--Shanina Piyarali, Shelf Awareness

"An absorbing and redemptive novel of grace, craft and heroic characters."--Berkshire Eagle

"A triumph of storytelling, an ambitious examination of the failures of love and how we, against all odds, find a way to survive.... A complex, resonant work that will reshape your understanding of family."
--Kevin Wilson, author of The Family Fang

"All of the luxuriously spun characters in The Last Romantics, entwined via that impossible web we call family, unfold over their many years with the perfect balance of familiarity and wonder that makes turning their pages such a pleasure."--Laurie Frankel, New York Times bestselling author of This Is How It Always Is
