Summary
The funeral of Charles Henry Topping on Manhattan's Upper East Side would have been a minor affair but for the presence of A.N. Dyer, the notoriously reclusive author whose novel Ampersand stans as asn American classic. But as Dyer delivers the eulogy for his oldes friend, he suffers a breakdown over the life he's led and the people he's hurt. So begins a wild, transformative week as A.N. Dyre gathers his two estranged sons-Richard, a struggling screenwriter and father, and Jamie, who is settling down after years of making documentaries about human suffering--in order to spend time with Andy, their half brother, whose mysterious birth tore the family apart nearly two decades ago. Only when the real purpose of this reunion comes to light do these sons realize just how much is at stake-for their father, for themselves, and for three generations of an American family
Summary
An intricately layered novel about a famous reclusive writer and his three sons finds their bond tested by the weight of long-held secrets and a cumbersome legacy shaped by boarding school, Hollywood and the elite circles of the publishing world
