Additional Information

One of Kirkus' Best Books of 2016

sis is looming for three generations of the Olyphant family.

In less than a year, Henrietta has lost her husband and nearly all of her money, and is about to lose her hard-won anonymity. After a lifetime spent trying to outrun the humiliation her own book caused her, Henrietta has reluctantly agreed to a reissue of The Inseparables, the salaciously filthy and critically despised bestseller she wrote decades earlier.

At the same time, her daughter, Oona, has moved back home to the house that Henrietta needs to sell. Oona is in the middle of a divorce from her husband, Spencer, a corporate-law refugee, stay-at-home dad, and unapologetic stoner. And Oona's teenage daughter, Lydia, away at boarding school, is facing an onslaught of scrutiny and shame when a nude photo of her goes viral.

The trouble only gets worse: Henrietta makes an upsetting discovery about her late husband; Oona embarks on a disastrous affair; and Lydia must deal with an ex-boyfriend who is determined to wreak havoc. Over the course of a few tumultuous days, the Olyphant women must come to terms with their past and try to reimagine their future.

Incisive, moving, and wickedly funny, The Inseparables examines what happens when our most carefully constructed ideas about our lives unravel, and we begin to reinvent ourselves--and our family--anew.

I first heard of this book from a review in the Chicago Tribune. I met the author at a wedding ten years ago, and I read what he has published so far. At the wedding we spent five minutes (or less) talking, he a very young aspiring author on his way to the Iowa Writer’s Workshop, and I an older aspiring author, with a few self-published books to my name and still struggling to be “discovered”. I do not remember what we talked about (literature, most likely), but I know that I sensed in him that same restrained lack of patience that I had experienced myself years before, when, as a young student, I visited an uncle of mine (my mother’s second cousin) in Piatra Neamț in Romania. My uncle sat me down at his kitchen table and read to me from his account of his family’s flight from Bessarabia to Romania during WWII. He was very dramatic, my uncle, while I couldn’t wait to get out of his kitchen and rejoin my friends gathered at a pub... Read more
From the first page I felt like I was with these women in their world. The Inseparables is an insightful, witty look at relationships. These characters will stay with me for a long time.
