Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

These Things Happen is set in Manhattan and focuses on two couples – one gay, one straight. They share a 15-year-old son, Wesley, who lives on the upper East Side with his mother and doctor stepfather. Trying to get to know his impressive, distant father better, he moves in for a semester with him his male partner in a mid-town brownstone. George, the partner, is a former actor — by his own account “fifteen years past fabulous.” Charming, funny, smart and compassionate, George manages a struggling theater district restaurant and becomes the model for the kind of man Wesley would someday like to be.

Synopsis:

The story of a modern family, set among Manhattans high-powered liberal elite, told through an ensemble of endearing voices, in which a teenage boy, having moved from his mother and stepfathers home for a school term to live with his father and his male partner, finds himself at the center of an act of violence that causes everyone to reexamine themselves, their assumptions, and their attitudes.
