The Weekend: A Novel
On a midsummer weekend, in a country house in upstate New York, three friends, Lyle, Marian, and John, gather on the anniversary of the death of John's brother, who was also Lyle's lover. As Tony's absence haunts each of them in different ways, the reunion is complicated by the presence of Lyle's new lover, a much younger man named Robert, and a faux-Italian dinner guest with a penchant for truth telling. As the seemingly idyllic weekend proceeds, each character is stripped bare, and old memories and new desires create a chemistry that will transform them all.

Review: The WeekendUser Review - Sally Atwell - Goodreads
I found this book, though short, very strange to read, in spite of the reviews on the back cover by critics. Several times I was ready to stop reading it, but then picked it back up, because I wanted to know the ending, which I found most unsatisfying. Read full review
Review: The WeekendUser Review - Mark - Goodreads
Slow and balanced characterization makes this novel all the more deep when things fall apart. I feel saddened and frustrated by the characters. A true sign of a moving book. Thank you Peter Cameron. Read full review
