We Are Water

A Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

We Are Water is a disquieting and ultimately uplifting novel about a marriage, a family, and human resilience in the face of tragedy, from Wally Lamb, the New York Times bestselling author of The Hour I First Believed and I Know This Much Is True.

After 27 years of marriage and three children, Anna Oh—wife, mother, outsider artist—has fallen in love with Viveca, the wealthy Manhattan art dealer who orchestrated her success. They plan to wed in the Oh family’s hometown of Three Rivers in Connecticut. But the wedding provokes some very mixed reactions and opens a Pandora’s Box of toxic secrets—dark and painful truths that have festered below the surface of the Ohs’ lives.

We Are Water is a layered portrait of marriage, family, and the inexorable need for understanding and connection, told in the alternating voices of the Ohs—nonconformist, Anna; her ex-husband, Orion, a psychologist; Ariane, the do-gooder daughter, and her twin, Andrew, the rebellious only son; and free-spirited Marissa, the youngest. It is also a portrait of modern America, exploring issues of class, changing social mores, the legacy of racial violence, and the nature of creativity and art.

With humor and compassion, Wally Lamb brilliantly captures the essence of human experience and the ways in which we search for love and meaning in our lives.

Customer Reviews

We are water

Loved every minute of this dysfunctional family! Did not want to put it down.

A bit disappointing

I've been quick to read everything lamb writes and usually am engrossed in the characters. This book just didn't make me want to care about any of the characters. There was something about this book that was disappointing. I felt as if it were somehow disjointed and for the first time I was looking forward to the end of one of Lambs novels.

Wally Lamb never disappoints.

I couldn't figure out where the story was going in the first couple chapters, but in Wally Lamb fashion, everything came together to form a deep and somewhat disturbing, unforgettable novel.
