About the book
Named Martha Stewart Living’s book club pick, Eddie Joyce’s debut novel Small Mercies is the kind of book that will remind you why you love reading. Set on Staten Island (the most forgotten borough in NYC), it’s is a touching and familiar story about that most complicated and essential group–family.
An ingeniously layered narrative, told over the course of one week, Small Mercies masterfully depicts an Italian-Irish American family and their complicated emotional history. Ten years after the loss of Bobby—the Amendola family’s youngest son—everyone is still struggling to recover from the firefighter’s unexpected death. Bobby’s mother Gail; his widow Tina; his older brothers Peter, the corporate lawyer, and Franky, the misfit; and his father Michael have all dealt with their grief in different ways. But as the family gathers together for Bobby Jr.’s birthday party, they must each find a way to accept a new man in Tina’s life while reconciling their feelings for their lost loved one.
