Father’s Day

Simon Van Booy

When devastating news shatters the life of six-year-old Harvey, she finds herself in the care of a veteran social worker, Wanda, and alone in the world save for one relative she has never met - a disabled ex-con, haunted by a violent past he can’t escape. Moving between past and present, Father’s Day weaves together the story of Harvey’s childhood on Long Island and her life as a young woman in Paris. Written in raw, spare prose that personifies the characters, this novel is the journey of two people searching for a future in the ruins of their past. Father’s Day is a meditation on the quiet, sublime power of compassion, and the beauty of simple, everyday things - a breakthrough work from one of our most gifted chroniclers of the human heart.
