Dear Librarians,

It's July 4th, 2005, and the Frankel family is gathered in the Berkshires to memorialize their son Leo, a journalist killed in Iraq. Over the course of three days, the Frankels will contend with sibling rivalries and marital feuds, with volatile women and silent men, and, ultimately, with the true meaning of family.

A New York Times Editor's Choice book, winner of the Edward Lewis Wallant Prize, and a finalist for the 2012 National Jewish Book Award, THE WORLD WITHOUT YOU was an Indie Next selection and was described by Publishers Weekly (starred/boxed review) as "a more bittersweet Jonathan Tropper's This is Where I Leave You or a less chilly Jonathan Franzen's The Corrections... an intelligently written novel that works as a summer read and for any other time of the year."
