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.
Sample is no good
The description sounded like a good read but unsure so I tried the sample - problem is now the sample dumps you in the middle of the book. Chapter 10! What the heck? And who is Ruth Fletcher?? Too bad because this is probably a reflection of Apple and not the author. Readers beware.
A Great Read
What an amazing text! I spent two days devouring the last 200 pages. It's a novel that you cannot put down. Wally Lamb does a great job with plot and character development. He continues to reel you in and at the end.....you wish for just one more chapter.
We Are Now Depressed
This is not your typical Wally Lamb. His writing style is usually very appealing as he develops his characters and tells a great story. This is such an overall depressing book, can't imagine why he's gone so dark.
