“The O'Briens is a major accomplishment” —New York Times Book Review
“Peter Behrens’s twentieth-century American saga The O’Briens (Pantheon) is a film-ready tale of an Irish clan’s ‘strange, rough beauty,’ brought to its fullest expression by its ambitious eldest son, who knows what he wants and isn’t afraid to court her: ‘I won’t try to put you in some little-woman box . . . . Happiness means freedom.” —Megan O’Grady, VogueMesdames et messieurs, the French edition of my novel The O'Briens comes out in Paris next month.
