Ordinary People by Diana Evans

 

Ordinary People by Diana Evans

"The title of Evans' novel is wonderfully apt... the two couples at the heart of her story grapple with such mundane problems as the effect of children on their relationships, and the change in their perceived identities over time.  But, taken altogether, these problems may be enough to break them. Evans' writing is lyrical and lovely, and she's capable of both illuminating small, private moments, and providing broader insight into matters of race and class.  A beautifully-done and heartfelt family story."  - Recommended by Erika
