A Day at the Beach

(Fiction; Houghton Mifflin, 2007)


A Day at the Beach is the story of one marriage’s undoing by the terrorist attacks in Manhattan on September 11, 2001. The novel appeared six years after that day, long enough for memories to be familiar, but a very short period of time by the measure of fiction: expressing a historic moment through character rather than trading on fascination, shock, or prurient horror takes time.
