What holds families together, or breaks them apart? To what extent does geography, historic tradition, or economics define the roles people play in a family, or are family roles formed by more intimate early home circumstances? When writers decide to write about a family, how do they go about telling their stories: do they have one narrator or several, do they use a first person or a third person perspective?
This spring the KML book discussion will look at a traditional type of novel, particularly common in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, to see how this kind of tale is being used in contemporary novels.
