Union Atlantic ~~ Adam Haslett


Description
Union Atlantic by Adam Haslett
From the author of the Pulitzer Prize finalist You Are Not A Stranger Here, a stunning, masterful portrait of our modern gilded age.

At the heart of Union Atlantic lies a test of wills between a retired history teacher, Charlotte Graves -- who has suddenly begun to hear her two dogs speaking to her in the
voices of Cotton Mather and Malcolm X -- and an ambitious young banker, Doug Fanning, who is building an ostentatious mansion on what was once Charlotte's family land. Drawn into the conflict is Nate Fuller, a troubled high-school student who stirs powerful emotions in both of them. What emerges is a riveting story of financial power, the defense of tradition, and the distortions of desire these forces create. With remarkable scope and precision, Union Atlantic delivers a striking vision of the violent, anxious world we've come to inhabit.
