The End of the Day

DUE IN JUNE: Bill Clegg’s The End of the Day is a tightly crafted novel. In elegant prose, he gradually reveals the intertwining of the lives of his complex characters. Each chapter is devoted to one of the six central players, and through their disparate perspectives, we learn the truths of their lives, none fully known to any of the others. With a forceful, ambiguous ending, Clegg leaves us pondering its meaning and his characters and their fateful decisions. These decisions, from youth through late adulthood, carry both intentional and unanticipated consequences, some predictable and some surprising to the reader. Recommended by Nancy
