DAY--Michael Cunningham

Michael Cunningham's new offering is a quiet, largely interior family drama that takes place just before, during and after the pandemic. It concerns two  couples, related by marriage, and two children. The imagined and real bonds among these people are tested as  circumstances and the vicissitudes of their inner lives affect each of them.  Michael Cunningham is exceptionally skilled at evoking the look  and feel of place, the almost wordless flux of mood, and the shifting degrees of feeling for others.  He also manages to convey the barely-glimpsable future outlines of these people who are  in the process of becoming  other than the selves they are now.  These are characters we come to care about, and miss when we close the book. This novel is more evidence that Cunningham is one of the most skilled, evocative and subtle novelists working  today.
