A Globe and Mail Best Spring Book – One of Lambda Literary Review‘s Most Anticipated LGBTQ+ Books of June 2023
A queer coming-of-age–and coming-to-terms–follows the after-effects of betrayal and poignantly explores the ways we search for home.
When a sister’s casual act of betrayal awakens their father’s demons–ones spawned by his time in Vietnamese POW camps–the effects of the ensuing violence against her brother ripple out over the course of forty years, from Lubbock, to San Francisco, to Fort Lauderdale. Swept up in this arc, the members of this family and their loved ones tell their tales. A queer coming-of-age, and coming-to-terms, and a poignant exploration of all the ways we search for home, Dreaming Home is the unforgettable story of the fragmenting of an American family.
