"With deft humor and perception, Waclawiak finds her characters' long-hidden vulnerabilities. The Invaders asks us to consider what occurs to people's hearts while their lives are lived at the surface." - O, The Oprah Magazine)
Over the process a summer time in a prosperous Connecticut group, a forty-something girl and her college-age stepson's lives collapse in a sequence of violent shocks.
Cheryl hasn't ever been the correct of country-club spouse. She's constantly felt like an interloper, and now, in her mid-forties--facing the tough realities of getting older whereas her marriage disintegrates and her afflicted stepson, Teddy, is kicked out of college--she feels solid adrift by means of the glowing beach group of Little Neck Cove, Connecticut. So while Teddy exhibits up at domestic simply as a typhoon brewing off the coast threatens to spoil the precarious shelter of the cove, she joins him in an epic downward spiral.
The Invaders, a searing follow-up to Karolina Waclawiak's significantly acclaimed debut novel, How to Get Into the dual Palms, casts a harsh mild at the smooth sheen of even the main "perfect" lives in America's unique seashore groups. With sharp wit and darkish humor, The Invaders exposes the lies and insecurities that run like faultlines via our tradition, threatening to pitch bored housewives, pill-popping little ones, and suspicious acquaintances headlong into the suburban abyss.
