Every family has its problems. But even among the most troubled, the Plumb family stands out as spectacularly dysfunctional. Years of simmering tensions finally reach a breaking point on an unseasonably cold afternoon in New York City as Melody, Beatrice, and Jack Plumb gather to confront their charismatic and reckless older brother, Leo, freshly released from rehab. Months earlier, an inebriated Leo got behind the wheel of a car with a nineteen-year-old waitress as his passenger. The ensuing accident has endangered the Plumbs joint trust fund, "The Nest" which they are months away from finally receiving. Meant by their deceased father to be a modest mid-life supplement, the Plumb siblings have watched The Nest's value soar along with the stock market and have been counting on the money to solve a number of self-inflicted problems. Melody, a wife and mother in an upscale suburb, has an unwieldy mortgage and looming college tuition for her twin teenage daughters. Jack, an antiques dealer, has secretly borrowed against the beach cottage he shares with his husband, Walker, to keep his store open. And Bea, a once-promising short-story writer, just can't seem to finish her overdue novel. Can Leo rescue his siblings and, by extension, the people they love? Or will everyone need to reimagine the future they've envisioned? Brought together as never before, Leo, Melody, Jack, and Beatrice must grapple with old resentments, present-day truths, and the significant emotional and financial toll of the accident, as well as finally acknowledge the choices they have made in their own lives.… (més)

    Before You Know Kindness de Chris Bohjalian (BookshelfMonstrosity)

    BookshelfMonstrosity: Though A Perfectly Good family is a bit more raw than the often humorous The Nest, both relate the (fraught) relationships between siblings over a family inheritance.

Book club book.

Pretty lame. ( )
  avdesertgirl | Aug 22, 2021 |
An enjoyable jaunt through the lives of some interesting characters who are larger than life but somehow believable. NYC as a backdrop is critical to the story as some of the characters could only exist in such a city. Entertaining read. ( )
  JMC400m | Aug 16, 2021 |
I thought it was an ok story about a very dysfunctional family full of people with all kinds of issues. But I couldn't quite get the hype around the book. It wasn't bad... it's definitely readable. But for me it was nothing special. And I thought the ending came quick and very unspectacular. I can see though how this could be turned into a movie. ( )

This book suffers from having quite a few unlikeable characters, but there are enough likeable ones to keep you going. The writing was good. ( )

“Her writing is like really good dark chocolate: sharper and more bittersweet than the cheap stuff, but also too delicious not to finish in one sitting.”
afegit per HarperCollins | editaEntertainment Weekly
 
“Hilarious and big-hearted, The Nest is a stellar debut.”
afegit per HarperCollins | editaPeople, Book of the Week
 
“[S]cenes both witty and tragic... that glow with the confidence of an experienced comic writer... [Sweeney] maintains a refreshing balance of tenderness. Rather than skewering the Plumbs to death, she pokes them, as though probing to find the humanity beneath their cynical crust.”
afegit per HarperCollins | editaWashington Post
 
“[A] closely observed, charming novel.”
afegit per HarperCollins | editaO, the Oprah Magazine
 
“The dynamics and foibles of family take center stage here, interweaving four characters’ tumultuous journeys to paint a rich picture of domestic drama.”
afegit per HarperCollins | editaB&N Reads, The Best New Fiction of the Month

As the rest of the guests wandered the deck of the beach club under an early-evening midsummer sky, taking pinched, appraising sips of their cocktails to gauge if the bartenders were using the top-shelf stuff and balancing tiny crab cakes on paper napkins while saying appropriate things about how they'd really lucked out with the weather because the humidity would be back tomorrow, or murmuring inappropriate things about the bride's snug satin dress, wondering if the spilling cleavage was do to bad tailoring or poor taste (a look as their own daughters might say) or an unexpected weight gain, winking and making tired jokes about exchanging toasters for diapers, Leo Plumb left his cousin's wedding with one of the waitresses.
Because the three Plumbs had agreed on the phone the previous evening that they should not drink in front of their brother Leo, they were all—unbeknownst to one another—sitting in separate bars in and around Grand Central, savoring a furtive cocktail before lunch.

Walker besefte dat hij jaren geleden stilzwijgend had toegestemd in het altijd weer subsidiëren van Jacks mislukkingen. ...Want dat deed je nu eenmaal als je van iemand hield, als je samen een leven opbouwde. Dan compenseerde je de zwakheid van de ander met jouw kracht. dan was je de betrouwbare basis van waaruit de ander kon handelen. Dan accommodeerde je de ander, dan was je mekaar ter wille. En als Walker wel eens ongeduldig werd, als hij soms wenste dat de dingen tussen hen wat meer in balans waren, stelde hij zich een leven zonder Jack voor en slikte hij zijn bezwaren in, omdat hij Jack ook niet kon missen. p 336
