PEN/Faulkner Award-winner Ann Patchett's most recent book draws from her own life to tell the story of two families dissolved and reconfigured after Bert Cousins kisses Beverly Keating at her daughter's christening. Spanning five decades, Commonwealth explores how a chance meeting reverberates through the lives of the four parents and six children involved and forges a lasting bond between the Keating and Cousins children. Told with equal measures of humor and heartbreak, it's a brilliant and tender meditation on the far-reaching ties of love and responsibility that bind us together.
