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.… (mere)

Excellent novelist's voice -masterful in moving between very flawed but relatable characters, their thoughts, their desires, their choices - a bit too convoluted at the end for me to hang in there w/each of them. By turns self-involved, by turns inspiring in their real struggles to forgive, share, connect - much to like in here. ( )
