"The sharp-tongued Mattie...is one of Pelletier's most sublime creations."-Booklist

Fortune hasn't been kind to 66-year-old Mattie Gifford. Her mother committed suicide, her husband slept with her best friend, and she can't stand her three selfish daughters. But she does love her son, Sonny, who nevertheless plunges her into deep despair when he takes two women and a poodle hostage in his ex-wife's trailer. Sonny claims to have seen John Lennon's face in an apparition and gets his own mug on the television news. Beaming Sonny Home is a poignant tale of disappointment and a mother's love that stands as a testament to Pelletier's gift for storytelling.

Review:

Fortune hadn't been particularly kind to Mattie Gifford. Her mother committed suicide, her husband slept around town, her best friend slept with her husband, and she can't stand her three daughters. But she does love her son, Sonny, who, nevertheless, plunges her into deep despair when he takes two women and a poodle hostage in a trailer park. Sonny claims to have seen John Lennon's face in an apparition and gets his own mug on the television news. All this is almost too much for Mattie, who stands at the center of this humorous but also poignant tale of disappointment and love.

From the Inside Flap:

The acclaimed author of A Marriage Made At Woodstockdelivers a funny, poignant novel about the complicated love between a mother and her son. When her wayward boy Sonny takes two women and a poodle hostage in his ex-wife's trailer, Mattie finds herself at the center of a drama that has the whole nation glued to their TV's.
