Wally Lamb has won the hearts of millions of readers with his four previous novels. With such New York Times bestsellers as She’s Come Undone and The Hour I First Believed, Wally Lamb has won the hearts of millions of readers. We Are Water, Lamb’s first full-scale novel in five years, is another probing exploration of contemporary themes, tempered with the wisdom and empathy that has marked all of this master storyteller's work. Rooted in the world of a troubled family and driven by riveting drama, this warm-hearted, emotionally powerful novel explores childhood trauma, abuse, and family dynamics, as well as issues of class, race, and cultural inclusion. Unfolding with humor and compassion, the novel vividly captures the flawed humanity of these unforgettable characters as they struggle to find hope and redemption in the aftermath of trauma and loss.
Wally Lamb is the author of four previous novels. His first two works of fiction, She’s Come Undone and I Know This Much is True, were both number one New York Times bestsellers and selections of Oprah’s Book Club. Once again, Wally Lamb digs deep into the complexities of the human heart to explore the ways in which we live, love, and find meaning in our lives.
