Some brief overview of this book

In his riveting new novel, Will Allison, critically acclaimed author of What You Have Left, crafts an emotional and psychological drama that explores the moral ambiguities of personal responsibility as it chronicles a fathers attempt to explain himself to his daughtereven though he knows that in doing so, he risks losing her. Life can change in an instant because of one small mistake. For Glen Bauer, all it takes is a quick jerk of the steering wheel, intended to scare a reckless driver.

But the reckless driver is killed, and just like that, Glens placid suburban existence begins to unravel. Written in part as a confessional letter from Glen to his daughter, Sara, Long Drive Home evokes the sharp-eyed observation of Tom Perrotta and the pathos of Dan Chaon in its trenchant portrait of contemporary American life. When Glen realizes no one else saw the accident, he impulsively lies about what happenedto the police, to his wife, even to Sara, who was in the backseat at the time of the crash.

But a tenacious detective thinks Sara might have seen more than she knows, or more than her parents will let her tell. And when Glen tries to prevent the detective from questioning Sara, he finds himself in a high-stakes cat-and-mouse game that could end in a lawsuit or prison. What he doesnt see coming is the reaction of his wife, Liza panicked plan that threatens to tear their family apart in the name of saving it.

But what if the accident wasnt really Glens fault? What if someone else were to blame for the turn his life has taken? Its a question Glen cant let go of.

And as he struggles to understand the extent of his own guilt, he finds himself on yet another collision course, different in kind but with the potential to be equally devastating. Long Drive Home is a stunning cautionary tale of unintended consequences that confirms Will Allisons growing reputation as a rising literary talent.
