About this product
- DescriptionWhen Margaret's fiancU is hospitalized for depression, she faces a choice- carry on with their planned marriage, or back away. She decides to marry him. Imagine Me Gone is the unforgettable story of what unfolds from this act of love. At the heart is the couple's eldest son, Michael, a brilliant, anxious music fanatic who makes sense of the world through parody. Over the decades, his younger siblings - savvy, responsible Celia and sensitive, meticulous Alec - struggle along with their mother to care for Michael's increasingly troubled and precarious existence. Weaving together the voices of its five central characters, this bittersweet yet frequently funny vel brings alive the love of a mother for her children, the inescapable devotion of siblings, and the legacy of a father's pain in the life of a family. It asks the ultimate question; how far will we go to save the people we love the most? Combining masterful vision with intimate humanity, Adam Haslett proves himself to be one of the most exciting American velists of his generation.
