Fiction General Fiction

Flournoy's knockout debut is one of those books that should, by rights, be described as the Great American Novel." -- NPR A New York Times Notable Book Named a Best Book of the Year byO, The Oprah Magazine * Entertainment Weekly * NPR * Essence * Men's Journal * Buzzfeed * Bustle * Time Out * Denver Post * Publishers Weekly * Kirkus Reviews * BookPage * Literary Hub * Kobo * The Week "A page-turner. Richly wrought prose and intimate, vivid dialogue. A-." -- Entertainment Weekly For over fifty years the Turners have lived on Yarrow Street. Their house has seen thirteen children get grown and gone--and some return; it has seen the arrival of grandchildren, the fall of Detroit's East Side, and the loss of a father. But when their powerful mother falls ill, the Turners are called home to decide their house's fate and to reckon with how their past haunts--and shapes--their future. The Turner House is a striking examination of the price we pay for our dreams, and the ways in which our families bring us home. "An epic that feels deeply personal . . . Flournoy's finely tuned empathy infuses her characters with a radiant humanity." -- O, The Oprah Magazine "In this assured and memorable novel, [Flournoy] provides the feeling of knowing a family from the inside out, as we would wish to know our own." -- New York Times Book Review *This book may have remainder mark* *This book may have minor shelf wear*
