Great Debut Novel.

We Shall Not All Sleep is the story of two tangled, often-competitive families who share Seven Island off the coast of Maine. The setting, 1964 New England, evokes something akin the Kennedy family. These are two families struggling with the burden of expectation that comes from privilege. Those pressures manifest themselves in any number of ways, from infidelity to how you raise your children. Catta Hillsinger, the son of Jim and Lila, is forced to inherit the strains that a life of expectation has put on his parents. Jim lost his CIA job and his purpose in life. Lila lost a sister and her connection to her husband. So Catta is forced to spend a night in the wild of a neighboring island. His test of reliance is meant to prepare him for the life ahead.
