Last Weekend of the Summer

Last Weekend

A family explosion all over the place with flying pieces and debris to sort out is the best way to describe this novel. It is well written, conveying all the emotions, petty and non-petty grievances and underlying resentments that the characters experience. It all happens concisely over one weekend after years of building when siblings Johnnie, Buddy, and CC and their mother, Mary, are invited with their families to their grandmother’s home. The arrival of their estranged father, Jake, begins the building of emotions to volcanic proportions until explosion is imminent.
