Publisher Comments:

Apologize, Apologize! takes us into the perversely charmed world of the Flanagans and their son, Collie (His parents named him after their favorite breed of dog.) Collie comes of age on Martha's Vineyard, trying to make sense of his wildly wealthy, hyper-articulate, resolutely crazy family members: a philandering father, incorrigible brother, pigeon-racing uncle, radical activist mother, and a domineering media mogul grandfather (accused of being a murderer by Collie's mother). As Collie searches for his place in the world, he suffers insurmountable loss and grapples for bravery as he struggles to cope with people he has no choice but to love. Elizabeth Kelly's first novel is brilliantly written and utterly unpredictable - a remarkable debut.

Paulette, August 25, 2010 (view all comments by Paulette)
The Flanagans are ecstatic about sorrow and blur the line between lunacy and rational choice. The main character, Collie, plays the straight man in this bittersweet coming of age in the midst of a crazy family tale. Told in an episodic fashion, Collie's life can be incredibly funny or intolerably sad...most often at the same time. Couldn't put it down.
