A New York Times bestseller in hardcover, The Year We Left Home is National Book Award finalist Jean Thompsonís mesmerizing, decades-spanning saga of one ordinary American family that captures the turbulent history of the country at large.

Named a New York Times Editorsí Choice, a People magazine ďPick of the Week,Ē and an Indie Next and Midwest Connections selection, The Year We Left Home is the career-defining novel that Jean Thompsonís admirers have been waiting for: a sweeping and emotionally powerful story of a single American family during the tumultuous final decades of the twentieth century.

Stretching from the early 1970s in the Iowa farmlands to suburban Chicago and across the map of contemporary America, The Year We Left Home follows the Erickson siblings as they confront prosperity and heartbreak, setbacks and triumphs, and seek their place in a country whose only constant seems to be breathtaking change. Ambitious and richly told, this is a vivid and moving meditation on our continual pursuit of happiness and an incisive exploration of the national character.

Jean Thompson is the author of the short story collections Do Not Deny Me, Throw Like a Girl, and Who Do You Love, a 1999 National Book Award finalist for fiction, and the novels City Boy and Wide Blue Yonder, a New York Times Notable Book and Chicago Tribune Best Fiction selection.
