CANCELLED: Maggie O'Farrell and Courtney Sullivan

The weather isn’t the only thing oppressing the family in Maggie O’Farrell’s accomplished, complex, and humane sixth novel. One morning during the drought that stifled London in 1976, a devoted husband and father gets up from the breakfast table and doesn’t come back. His disappearance dismantles the family’s already precarious stability, uncovering layer after layer of secrets and words long left unsaid. With Courtney Sullivan, author of The Engagements.
