Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Having Everything" is the story Philip Tate, a man who has everything--youth, looks, a beautiful wife, and a perfect family. Philip takes a nighttime drive that leads him to jeopardize all he has for a moment's flirtation with the forbidden.

Synopsis:

Philip Tate is a man who has everything — youth, looks, a beautiful wife and perfect family, a distinguished deanship at Harvard. Having Everything is the story of a nighttime drive that leads Philip to jeopardize it all for a moment's flirtation with the forbidden. For on that drive he will collide with the Kizers — beautiful, troubled Dixie and brilliant, kinky Hal. By stepping, without knocking, into the Kizers' house and into the midst of their sad marriage, Philip sets in motion the near ruin — and perhaps the salvation — of his entire world. Fierce, ironic, and beautifully told, Having Everything reminds us that sometimes — in marriage, and in life — having everything is not enough. "A master of understated, ominous moments in a marriage in which not asking a question can be more disastrous than asking it.... Sharp, moving, poignant." — Lev Raphael, The Washington Post Book World; "John L'Heureux is perhaps today's most frightening novelist because his characters, for all their strange behavior, are not freaks or misfits. They are the people we see and know.... Having Everything is an unforgettable exploration of what it means to become fully human." — Richard Wakefield, The Seattle Times; "A master of spoof and irony.... As the book moves forward to a conclusion that readers will sense is going to be catastrophic, it is impossible to stop turning its pages." — Carol Herman, The Washington Times
