The Latecomer

A Novel

By Jean Hanff Korelitz
Narrated by: Julia Whelan
Length: 16 hours 19 minutes

The Latecomer

The Latecomer is a story about the most dysfunctional family you will ever meet. Salo and his triplets can not relate at all to each other or to strangers and each has a weird obsession that others find hard to understand. Salo at least has a reason for his behavior… a tragic accident during college, for which he has never forgiven himself. Joanna is so preoccupied with trying to create the perfect family that she thinks should exist that she also is totally unconnected to the real world. I loved listening to each character's internal dialogue when faced with something new or unexpected. I normally do not like overly descriptive writing or lots of unnecessary dialogue but their conversations with themselves are hysterical and very educational and enlightening. This, for me, was a wonderful break from the mysteries and thrillers I normally read. The ending to this epic family saga, which included surprises for the reader and most of the main characters, was very powerful and quite satisfying.”
