Description

A powerful, timely debut,
The Turner House marks a major new contribution to the story of the American
family.

The Turners have lived on
Yarrow Street for over fifty years. Their house has seen thirteen children
grown and gone—and some returned; it has seen the arrival of grandchildren, the
fall of Detroit's East Side, and the loss of a father. The house still stands
despite abandoned lots, an embattled city, and the inevitable shift outward to
the suburbs. But now, as ailing matriarch Viola finds herself forced to leave
her home and move in with her eldest son, the family discovers that the house
is worth just a tenth of its mortgage. The Turner children are called home to
decide its fate and to reckon with how each of their pasts haunts—and
shapes—their family's future.

Already praised by Ayana
Mathis as "utterly moving," The Turner House brings us a colorful,
complicated brood full of love and pride, sacrifice and unlikely inheritances.
It's a striking examination of the price we pay for our dreams and futures, and
the ways in which our families bring us home.
