9780061363931: Run: A Novel

Since their mother's death, Tip and Teddy Doyle have been raised by their loving, possessive, and ambitious father. As the former mayor of Boston, Bernard Doyle wants to see his sons in politics, a dream the boys have never shared. But when an argument in a blinding New England snowstorm inadvertently causes an accident that involves a stranger and her child, all Bernard Doyle cares about is his ability to keep his children—all his children—safe.

Set over a period of twenty-four hours, Run shows us how worlds of privilege and poverty can coexist only blocks apart from each other, and how family can include people you've never even met. Suspenseful and stunningly executed, Run is ultimately a novel about secrets, duty, responsibility, and the lengths we will go to protect our children.

About the Author:

Ann Patchett is the author of six novels and three books of nonfiction. She has won many prizes, including Britain's Orange Prize, the PEN/Faulkner Prize, and the Book Sense Book of the Year. Her work has been translated into more than thirty languages. She lives in Nashville, Tennessee, where she is the co-owner of Parnassus Books.

From AudioFile:

Patchett writes another novel with an unlikely twist and a style so captivating that the listener completely suspends disbelief. A poor black woman with an 11-year-old daughter throws herself in front of an SUV to save the life of a 21-year-old young man named Tip. Quickly listeners learn that the woman is his birth mother, and a dramatic story reveals the intimacies of two unique families as they become family to each other. Peter Francis James delivers the narrative with tonal subtleties that define all the characters--from the vital, insightful 11-year-old to the two mothers whose love is strong enough to last beyond the grave.
