A gripping debut novel about two young married couples whose lives collide in a pile-up of deceits and indiscretions, just as a mysterious crisis erupts in midtown Manhattan

It was the exhilaration of new parenthood that first united Michael and Paul, sharing a flask of whiskey outside the Brooklyn hospital where their wives, Rebecca and Jenny, had exiled them from the delivery room. For Paul, though, the euphoria was followed swiftly by tragedy. Hoping to ease Jenny's recovery, he turned to Michael for a favor, unwittingly charting a course that would braid these couples more tightly than he could have imagined, and ultimately rip them apart.

One year later, on the same morning that the catastrophes of their personal lives come to an explosive head, an uncertain disaster all but shuts down the city, leaving both men stranded--Michael at the northernmost tip of Manhattan and Paul in a dark subway tunnel under the East River. Each must make the arduous trek home while enduring a record-breaking heat wave and nervously eyeing the thin plume of smoke above the skyline, though it's their private turmoils that loom largest. Told in the alternating voices of these charismatic but deeply flawed men, Little Disasters deftly cuts between the suspense of the citywide emergency and the history of secrets, lies, and losses that has brought these four intertwined lives to the brink. Smart, unsparing, and bitingly funny, Randall Klein's debut is an engrossing story of the bonds of love and family--and our unending urges to test them, even when we need them most.
