Christmas in Austin, Hardback Book

Christmas in Austin Hardback



'A novel that everyone should read before they face their own family Christmas.' The TimesWhen the four Essinger children gather in Austin for Christmas, they all bring their news.

Nathan wants to become a federal judge. Susie's husband has taken a job in England. Jean has asked her boyfriend and (once-married) boss to meet her family.

Paul has broken up with Dana, mother of their son Cal.

But their parents have plans, too, and Liesel, the materfamilias, has invited Dana and Cal to stay, hoping to bring them back together.

As the week unfolds, each of the Essingers has to confront the tensions and conflicts between old families and new.

From one of Granta's Best Young British Novelists, Christmas in Austin beautifully explores the deep-rooted division between the world we grow up in, and the life we make for ourselves.
