Following in the long tradition of writers like Tolstoy, Steinbeck, VC Andrews, Janet Peery uses the dysfunctional family to gain insight into a society and its culture, presenting an honest portrait of a complicated family grappling with a long history of addiction, bad behavior and tragedy. Though the Campbell family is roiled by drug abuse and sibling rivalries, they are not evil-hearted, and they band together when it counts. As America grapples with a growing opioid crisis, The Exact Nature of Our Wrongs offers a candid and compassionate portrait of a family challenged by drug abuse whose members feud, scheme, argue, and resent, but who always love and forgive.

A dazzling work of structural, thematic, and psychological complexity, Anything Is Possible stands as an alternative to those books that depict a hopeless and despairing white working class in today's divided America. Sure, it is a work of fiction, but as the title suggests, with compassion, decency, and an open heart, even the most damaged individual can find it within herself to break the cycle of poverty, shame, and abuse.

By removing the melodrama inherent in the refugee’s plight and replacing it with quotidian incidents picked out in vivid, evocative and highly astute prose, Mohsin Hamid elevates Exit West from a self-pitying weeper or a heart-wrenching invective into a sympathetic, beautifully wrought tale of two people propelled by events outside of their control who seize their own destinies. While offering a dim view of the future, it also comforts with a portrait of humanity’s resiliency.
