A piercing and compassionate debut novel about how the new generations atone for the sins of the old in small-town AmericaRobert and Irene Kelly were a golden couple of the late 70s―she an artist, he a businessman, each possessed by dynamism and vibrancy. But with two young boys to care for, Irene finds herself confined by the very things she'd dreamed of having. And Robert, pressured by Irene's demands and haunted by the possibility of failure, risks the family business to pursue a fail-safe real estate opportunity.Twenty years later, their now-grown sons, Nathan and Andrew, are drawn back to confront a fateful diagnosis. As they revisit the Cape Cod of their childhood, the ghosts of the past threaten to upend the tenuous peace of the present.In The Outer Cape, Patrick Dacey delivers a story of four people grappling with the shadow of infinite possibility, a book in which chasing the American dream and struggling to survive are one and the same.
