Mountain Road, Late at Night

Alan Rossi

A striking, compulsive and immensely powerful debut novel about what happens when tragedy strikes a family.

Nicholas and his wife April live in a remote cabin in the Blue Ridge Mountains with their four-year-old son. They keep their families at a distance, rejecting what their loved ones think of as ‘normal’. In the early hours of a Wednesday morning, they are driving home from a party when their car crashes on a deserted road and they are killed. This is the story of what happens after the tragedy.

As the couple’s grieving relatives descend on the family home, they are forced to decide who will care for the child Nicholas and April left behind. Nicholas’s brother, Nathaniel and sister-in-law aren’t ready to be parents but his mother and father have issues of their own. And April’s mother is driving across the country to claim her grandson.

Experiencing a few traumatic days in the minds of each family member, Alan Rossi’s debut, Mountain Road, Late at Night is a taut, nuanced and breathtaking look at what we do when everything goes wrong, and the frightening fact that life carries on, regardless. A gripping, affecting and extremely accomplished debut.
