Stewart O'Nan's critically acclaimed novel Everyday People brings together the stories of the people of an African-American Pittsburgh neighborhood during one fateful week in the early fall of 1998. Vibrant, poignant, and brilliantly rendered, Everyday People is a lush, dramatic portrait that vividly captures the experience of the day-to-day struggle that is life in urban America. A unique and tantalizing novel that celebrates the lives of everyday people in an extraordinary way. -- Mike Maiello, San Francisco Chronicle An important book ... Beautiful, heartbreaking, haunting. -- Manuel Luis Martinez, Chicago Tribune.
