Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

An epic tale of three generations of an American family--and the ambition, violence, deceptions and hard-won love that shapes their lives. Rich in vivid details and masterfully crafted characters' lives, and narrated in a voice of great emotional power and sensitivity, Flesh and Blood is an unforgettable, moving and stunning portrait of contemporary America.


Review:

"With its rich characterization, built on a compelling plot and an incisive moral vision, 'Flesh and Blood' is a meaty read and solid confirmation of Michael Cunningham's formidable talent."

San Francisco Chronicle Book Review

Review:

"In the course of the novel, the dark, passionate and complicated lives of the Mediterranean immigrants alternately clash with and are assimilated by the other world of smooth, blond Anglo-Saxon America. Cunningham captures the conflicting passions of intimate relationships, the desire to humiliate and the desire to cherish..."

Julian Ferraro, Times Literary Supplement, 08/11/1995

Book Description: Touchstone Books, United States, 1996. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 203 x 133 mm. Brand New Book. In Flesh and Blood, Michael Cunningham takes us on a masterful journey through four generations of the Stassos family as he examines the dynamics of a family struggling to come of age in the 20th century. In 1950, Constantine Stassos, a Greek immigrant laborer, marries Mary Cuccio, an Italian-American girl, and together they produce three children: Susan, an ambitious beauty, Billy, a brilliant homosexual, and Zoe, a wild child. Over the years, a web of tangled longings, love, inadequacies and unfulfilled dreams unfolds as Mary and Constantine s marriage fails and Susan, Billy, and Zoe leave to make families of their own. Zoe raises a child with the help of a transvestite, Billy makes a life with another man, and Susan raises a son conceived in secret, each extending the meaning of family and love. With the power of a Greek tragedy, the story builds to a heartbreaking crescendo, allowing a glimpse into contemporary life which will echo in one s heart for years to come.
