The author of two books included among the New York Times Most Notable Books of the Year, Robinson is known for her perceptive and powerful chronicling of the hidden realities of WASP family life. In her new novel, she returns to familiar ground -- New York's Upper East Side and summer colonies in New England -- and reveals that class and privilege provide no protection from familial pain.This Is My Daughter is the intense, closely viewed story of a second marriage, charting the attempts of two divorced parents who are struggling to form a new family with their two daughters. The girls, however, have their own ideas: While children can't prevent a divorce, they can prevent the success of a marriage. The tensions and complexities of the situation grow steadily more powerful as the story moves to a stunning and emotional climax. Readers who know Robinson's work will recognize her elegant prose and compassionate gaze; readers of writers such as Jane Smiley and Alice Munro will discover a similar talent.
