One of our newer novels is “The Nest” by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney. Years of tension finally reach a breaking point when Melody, Beatrice, and Jack Plumb gather to confront their charismatic and reckless brother, Leo. Months earlier an inebriated Leo got behind the wheel of a car with a passenger. The ensuing accident has endangered the Plumb’s joint trust fund, “the nest.” Each sibling had been counting on the money to solve a number of self-inflicted problems. Now they must grapple with old resentments, present-day truths and the emotional and financial toll of the accident.
