The Fisher family of Alluvia, New York, is coming undone. Evelyn spends her days tending to her husband, Henry—an acclaimed and reclusive novelist slowly losing his battle with Alzheimer’s. Their son, Benji, onetime star of an ’80s sitcom called Prodigy, sinks deeper into drunken obscurity, railing against the bit roles he’s forced to take in uncelebrated regional theater. His sister, Claudia, tries her best to shore up her family even as she deals with the consequences of a remarkable, decades-old secret that’s come to light. When the Fishers mistake one of Benji’s drug-induced accidents for a suicidal cry for help, Benji commits to playing a role he hopes will reverse his fortune and stall his family’s decline. Into this mix comes Max Davis, a twentysomething cello virtuoso and real-life prodigy, whose appearance spurs the entire family to examine whether the secrets they thought were holding them all together may actually be what’s tearing them apart.

David Hopson’s All the Lasting Things is a beautiful, moving family portrait that explores the legacy we all stand to leave—in our lives, in our work—and asks what those legacies mean in a world where all the lasting things do not last.

About the Author:

David Hopson earned an MA in American and English literature from Washington University in St. Louis and an MFA in fiction from Columbia University. He lives in Brooklyn. All the Lasting Things is his first novel.

Review:

“David Hopson’s All The Lasting Things tells the story of a family ridiculously and ardently tethered together, and yet separated by a series of long-held secrets. His vibrant, radiant prose buoys the reader along almost as much as the plot's curious twists. A captivating debut.” —Helen Schulman, This Beautiful Life

“Survival is not only a necessity in this incandescent debut, it's the poetry we create in our everyday lives—how we love, how we fail, how we try again, no matter what. This is one straight from the heart, and to the heart as well.” —Stacey D’Erasmo, author of Wonderland

“David Hopson's beautiful debut novel is a devastating examination of family, asking not so much why we keep secrets but who we keep them for. Spending time with his Fisher family will leave you in a fugue state: shattered but somehow hopeful.” —Eddie Joyce, author of Small Mercies

“In his richly textured and utterly convincing portrait of the beleaguered Fisher family, David Hopson delivers a novel of rare intensity, intelligence, and emotion. All The Lasting Things explores with great skill and honesty the genuine human need for relevancy, for recognition, for remembrance.” —David Goodwillie, author of American Subversive
