Staff Reviews


In a series of long letters to her husband, Eva tries to make sense of the heinous thing their son Kevin did. Eve never really wanted to have children so did her ambivalence toward Kevin cause his later actions? In a gripping exploration of parental responsibilities and nature vs. nurture, Shriver’s prize winning novel tells of a non-maternal mother and a passive father willing to overlook some obvious red flags from their son who starts as a difficult baby and grows into a troubled teen. The subject is harsh and the writing is complicated but the journey is worth it and you’ll need to talk about Kevin when you’ve finished.
