Dana Spiotta

Just as it seems she has it all, Samantha Raymond’s life begins to come apart: Trump has been elected, her mother is ill and her teenage daughter is increasingly remote.

At fifty-two she finds herself staring into ‘the Mids’ - those night-time hours of supreme wakefulness where women of a certain age contemplate their lives. In Sam’s case, this means motherhood, mortality, and the state of an unravelling nation.

When Sam falls in love with a beautiful, decrepit house on the wrong side of town, she buys it on a whim and flees her suburban life - and her family - in an attempt to find beauty in the ruins.
