Before you wrack your brain for the title of your favorite A.N. Dyer novel, or any A.N. Dyer novel for that matter, I’ll save you the anguish (and embarrassment): he’s not real. He’s the reclusive writer at the center of David Gilbert’s & Sons, and all of these people–Brooke Shields most emotionally–have something to say about him.
About the book, Donna Seaman writes, “A marvel of uproarious and devastating missteps and reversals charged with lightning dialogue, Gilbert’s delectably mordant and incisive tragicomedy of fathers, sons, and brothers, privilege and betrayal, celebrity and obscurity, ingeniously and judiciously maps the interface between truth and fiction, life and art.”
