Ad description

A sweeping, multigenerational, richly compassionate novel set in modern day San Francisco that tells the story of two marriages — the secrets that everyone knows and lives with, and the thousand small compromises we make to remain a family.Struggling with the tragic loss of their newborn while parenting two young children, Lena Rusch and her husband Charlie Pepper, part of the “promise” generation, must face real limitations for the first time in their lives. Beyond their domestic dramas, Charlie is barely staying afloat professionally. The silent pacts Lena and Charlie make to themselves are familiar promises:  If we can have one more healthy baby, we’ll be done.  If he can just earn that much money, we’ll retire and remake our life.  If she can tolerate this one last stretch of travel, I swear I’ll stay home and listen to everything she wants to say.  If I can just get through this, I promise I’ll become the person I know I should be.Three Stages of Amazement offers a panoramic view of America today, as it retrenches in the wake of economic reversal, and includes such unforgettable characters as Cal Rusch, Lena’s uncle, a Silicon Valley titan and Ivy, his socialite wife, whose relentless desires for power and status create complications in all the lives they touch — their grown children, grandchildren, business partners, friends, and the servants and workers upon whom the glamorous life depends.  As Lena and Charlie, Ivy and Cal, face the temptations of their youth, the lovers and the freedom, they discover that real life is the ultimate challenge.  Inheritors of a compromised past and an uncertain future, burdened with debts they cannot count, husbands and wives must somehow surrender. Only then are they able to find the unexpected grace that accompanies a deeper commitment to the people they love.
