When We Get Home

"In my family we are all disposable," begins Annie, the winning but troubled narrator of When We Get Home. She has seen her debonair father go through three divorces and her 20-year-old brother Walter passionately fall for Isabelle, their father's newest wife. Annie herself is struggling with love and fidelity in her own marriage, trying to transcend her family tendency toward instability. When Walter gets into severe trouble while on a camping trip in Canada, Annie is forced to reevaluate everything—her family's legacy of turmoil and her own sometimes offhand approach to commitment. From New York City to the family beach house on Long Island, we follow this idiosyncratic and captivating family.
