A Stone Boat
In a book that rivals D. H. Lawrence's "Sons and Lovers" for its intense representation of the complex emotions between a mother and son, Andrew Solomon has written an extraordinarily perceptive novel of family, sexuality, and the changes wrought by loss. Harry, an American concert pianist with an international career, meets his glamorous mother in Paris to confront her disapproval of his homosexuality. Instead, he is confronted with the news of her cancer.
