An unexpected phone call from her estranged brother, Thom, propels Abby Sandler from her staid life as a teacher in Philadelphia to Atlanta, where over the ensuing holiday season, as Thom’s chaotic, eclectic group of friends swirls around them, Thom and Abby tentatively move toward reconciliation, and grapple with Thom’s recent diagnosis as HIV-positive.


“With the same winning flair and affecting poignancy that propelled his debut novel, Pagan Babies, Johnson effectively harnesses the sweeping notions of family, presenting his own take on the power of blood ties.” —Publishers Weekly
