From the bestselling author of The Hours and Specimen Days comes a generous, masterfully crafted novel with all the power of a Greek tragedy.

The epic tale of an American family, Flesh and Blood follows three generations of the Stassos clan as it is transformed by ambition, love, and history. Constantine Stassos, a Greek immigrant, marries Mary Cuccio, an Italian-American girl, and they have three children, each fated to a complex life. Susan is oppressed by her beauty and her father’s affections; Billy is brilliant—and gay; Zoe is a wild, heedless visionary. As the years pass, their lives unfold in ways that compel them—and their parents—to meet ever greater challenges.
