We first meet the Mahoney family in 1997, when the four grown children return to their childhood home on the Jersey Shore for Christmas. Then their story begins to unfold in reverse, going deeper into the past, until we are at the same beach house in the summer of '72. The journey back in time reveals the secrets and lies that shaped who the Mahoneys are, as well as the truth about their individual struggles with alcoholism, mental illness, sexual orientation, and all the temptations and pressures of daily life. A "promising debut" that "beautifully captures the intimacies of family life" (Kirkus Reviews); Snapshots draws a complex portrait of an ordinary suburban family and the joys, sorrows, and strengths that unite them.
