The Sorrows of an American


My sister called it 'the year of secrets,' but when I look back on it now, I've come to understand that it was a time not of what was there, but of what wasn't.

When Erik Davidsen and his sister, Inga, find a disturbing note among their late father's papers, they believe he may be implicated in a mysterious death.The Sorrows of an American tells the story of the Davidsen family as brother and sister unbandage its wounds in the year following their father’s funeral. Erik is a psychiatrist dangerously vulnerable to his patients; Inga is a writer whose late husband, a famous novelist, seems to have concealed a secret life. Interwoven with each new mystery in their lives are discoveries about their father’s youth - poverty, the War, the Depression - that bring new implications to his relationship with his children.

"It is a rare writer who can both rouse the mind and grip the heart, and all the while provide the sensuous delights of image and language!a compelling narrative in which the past haunts the present of characters so vividly real they become members of your intimate circle and erupt in your dreams! almost impossible to put down, and even harder not to re-read."

Lisa Appignanesi, Independent


Vik Groskop, Observer

"Subtle and complex"

Tom Deveson, Sunday Times

"Beautifully thought through, deeply serious and enormously intelligent"

Jane Smiley, Guardian
