9781477825235: The Banks of Certain Rivers

In the lakeside resort town of Port Manitou, Michigan, dedicated teacher and running coach Neil Kazenzakis shoulders responsibilities that would break a lesser man: a tragic accident has left his wife seriously debilitated, he cares for his mother-in-law who suffers from dementia, and he’s raising his teenage son, Chris, on his own. On top of all that, he’s also secretly been seeing Lauren, his mother-in-law’s caregiver.

When Neil breaks up a fight one day after school, he doesn’t give the altercation much thought. He’s got bigger issues on his mind, like the fact that Lauren is ready for a commitment and he has to figure out a way to tell Chris that he’s in a serious relationship with someone other than the boy’s mother. But when an anonymous person uploads a video of the fight to YouTube, the stunning footage suggests Neil assaulted a student. With his job, his family, and his reputation suddenly in jeopardy, Neil must prove his innocence and win back the trust of the entire community—including his son’s.

Jon Harrison’s The Banks of Certain Rivers is a powerful tale of family, loss, and the meaning of love.

Review:

"Moving...rife with tension...Harrison's characters are compelling, and his prose is lucid...Neil's vividly detailed life is sure to appeal to fans of emotionally involving fiction...recognizing both the difficulty and importance of letting go and moving on. Confident, clearsighted and poignant." —Kirkus Reviews

"Jon Harrison's debut The Banks of Certain Rivers is a jewel-box of a novel. Tracing the limits of one man's love (and self-knowledge) with humor and drama, Harrison breathes life into Neil Kazenzakis and his struggles with such grace that the reader feels like she knows him. Elegant, poignant, and page-turning." —Katherine Howe, New York Times bestselling author of The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane

"Urgent, real, and often very funny." —James Frey, New York Times bestselling author of Bright Shiny Morning and A Million Little Pieces

The Banks of Certain Rivers is a touching, funny and thoughtful novel written with elegance and confidence. Impossible to put down, it’s a book I know I’ll read again and again; it made me laugh, cry and want to be a better writer. It should be at the top of your to-read list.” —Catherine McKenzie, bestselling author of Hidden
