The Great Wide Open

eAudiobook
New York, 1980s. Heady, excessive times. Alice Burns -? a young book editor ?- is deep into a manuscript about the morass of family life. The observations resonate, perhaps because she has just watched her own family implode. As she reads she wonders: When did the sadness start? Is the unhappiness a choice? Thus begins a great American epic which follows Alice as she navigates high school bullying, first love and sexism at college, a spell in 1970's Ireland, and a tragedy that sends her stateside. But it is also the tale of her endlessly complex parents and brothers; how their destinies are written by the lies they tell themselves and others.
