Lucy Crown

A New York Times bestseller from an author with “a natural gift for storytelling”: A mother and son are reunited years after a shattering betrayal (The New York Times). She passes through the Paris restaurant, alone, unbent, and unbroken. Lucy Crown has lived with heartbreak for long enough that it no longer shows on her face, and she’s not afraid to dine in solitude. But then she sees him across the bar, full of liquor and life, looking far happier than he did the last time she saw him two decades before: Tony, her son—the one man she loved more than any other, the one she nearly destroyed. Twenty years earlier, in 1937, Lucy was an unhappily married suburban housewife, and Tony was so frail his parents were forced to hire a companion for him. When the companion caught Lucy’s eye, he awoke in her a feeling of passion she thought had died long ago—leading to an act of indiscretion during a vacation in Vermont that would upend their family, and take half a lifetime to repair. From the author of such classics as Rich Man, Poor Man and The Young Lions—an O. Henry Award winner who “always writes immensely readable books”—Lucy Crown is an unflinching look at the emotional reality of infidelity, heartbreak, and divorce that remains a testament to the power of forgiveness (The New York Times). This ebook features an illustrated biography of Irwin Shaw including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.
