About this title
Michelle Berry's brilliant first novel, What We All Want, is as touching as it is mirthful. Siblings Hilary, Thomas and Billy have been thrown together after a long estrangement to plan their mother's funeral. For Thomas and Billy, the prospect of being back in their childhood home is far from ideal. Even more unsettling is their sister, who has developed a few disturbing attachments to dolls, preserves, and pebbles underfoot. For Hilary, the sight of her brothers is a sign of hope and a new life. As they argue over the funeral arrangements, Hilary, Billy, and Thomas struggle to contain their secret hopes, desires, fears, and shame. Witty and insightful, What We All Want shows just how beautiful and tragic family can be.About the Author:
