Details

In letters written to the boy's father, mother Eva probes the upbringing of this more-than-difficult child and reveals herself to have been the reluctant mother of an unsavory son. As the schisms in her family unfold, we draw closer to an unexpected climax that holds breathtaking surprises and its own hard-won redemption.

In Eva, Shriver has created a narrator who is touching, sad, funny, and reflective. A spellbinding read, WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN is as original as it is timely.

'Furiously imagined.' -Seattle Times
