Harry Tabor is about to receive the Man of the Decade award. As he enters his twilight years, this distinction seems like the culmination to a life well lived. A perfect life. A life spent helping Jewish refugees from all over the globe find a better life in America, giving them a second chance.

Harry knows all about second chances. He has the perfect marriage-his wife, Roma, is an eminent child psychologist, and they tell each other almost everything. His three grown children, Phoebe, Camille, and Simon, are all accomplished. But his life could have very well taken a different turn if, seemingly a lifetime ago, he hadn't uprooted everyone from their life in Connecticut and brought them out to the desert, literally, where they knew no one and he could start again.

In The Family Tabor, Cherise Wolas examines the five members of the Tabor family as they prepare to celebrate Harry. Through each of their points of view, we see family members whose lives are built on lies, both to themselves and to others, and how these all come crashing down during a seventy-two-hour period.

MEDIA REVIEWS

`[Wolas] writes with gorgeous intensity' Library Journal, Starred Review

`Intriguing...Wolas illuminates the rich, complex histories of the older Tabor generations, when they were Tabornikovs, and the sense of loyalty to one's family history is so vivid in the novel it is practically its own character' New York Times Book Review

`A hypnotic generational saga' Chicago Review of Books

`In this compelling story, luck, like love, can be elusive, ever-present and lost' Jewish Week

`Brace yourself for prose that is confident and prickly, and characters that are complex and problematic' The Toronto Star
