WE ARE WATER
Genre: Mainstream, General Mainstream Fiction
With We Are Water, New York Times bestselling author Lamb (She’s Come Undone, I Know This Much Is True) explores themes of sexuality, race and love. This powerful novel about the damage that keeping a dark secret can cause and the emotional wreckage that occurs when the secret begins to come to light is a must-read. Recommended for anyone who enjoys complex novels, Lamb’s latest masterpiece uses every color in his palette to bring a moving story to life.
Annie and Orion Oh are together for 27 years before their marriage ends. After their divorce, Annie prepares to marry Vivica, a prominent art dealer, while coping with inner demons from the past, and Orion comes to terms with Annie leaving him for a woman while also dealing with how his own past has shaped him. Told through the voices of the Oh family and flashbacks to the past, We Are Water explores how a flood in the early 1960s propels the life of young Annie into a future mixed with pain, love, a fortuitous art career and, most of all, acceptance.
