With the realism of John Updike and the psychological astuteness of Alice Hoffman, this "absorbing, elegant novel . . . remains surprising to the end" (Suzanne Berne).Greg Goodman is a very ordinary guy?a not-very-ambitious school teacher and football coach who takes his attractive wife, Patty, their twin adolescent daughters, and the comfortable ease of their suburban routine for granted. Until lightening strikes?both literally and figuratively?as Greg runs a pattern with his junior varsity team during a muggy August practice and fifteen-year-old Timothy Phelps is directly struck. This crisis threatens to unravel all the strands anchoring Greg to his normal habits of being. When Timothy's mother, a stripper and addict who abandoned Timothy as a child, enters the mix, Greg discovers his own complicated and misguided longings. As in her debut novel, Suzanne Matson employs "crisp, clean writing . . . [and] compassionately drawn characters" ( New York Times Book Review) to create a gripping story about the nature of love, trust, family, and marriage. Set in a seemingly safe world of split-levels and carefully tended lawns, A Trick of Nature powerfully captures the characters' emerging self-awareness as they are forced to test the assumptions they hold about themselves and the connections that bind them.
Über den Autor: Suzanne Matson is the author of The Hunger Moon and A Trick of Nature. She teaches at Boston College and lives in Newton, Massachusetts.
