Like his previous, critically acclaimed novel Matrimony, Josh Henkin's latest book takes us into the heart of family relationships, revealing the uneasy undercurrents that belie the successful surface. The Frankel family has come together in the Berkshires to commemorate the death of Leo, a journalist killed in Iraq, and the youngest of the siblings. As the novel progresses, we understand the impact that Leo's death has had on his three other siblings, his grief-stricken parents, and the wife and child he has left behind. The World Without You compels our attention with its sharp dialogue and its astute portrayal of this complicated, high-strung and tightly-wound family.
