Description

Finalist for the 2016 Chicago Review of Books Award Urgent and stirring. Laila Lalami, Pulitzer Prize finalist for The Moors Account Every Kind of Wanting explores the complex intersection of three unique families and their bustling efforts to have a Community Baby. Miguel could not be more different from his partner Chad, a happy-go-lucky real estate mogul from Chicago's wealthy North Shore. When Chad's sister, Gretchen offers the couple an egg, their search for a surrogate leads them to Miguel's old friend Emily, happily married to an eccentric Irish playwright, Nick, with whom she is raising two boys. Into this web falls Miguel's sister Lina, a former addict and stripper, who begins a passionate affair with Nick while deciphering the mysteries of her past. But every action these couples make has unforeseen consequences. As Lina faces her long-hidden demons, and the fragile friendships between Miguel and Chad and Nick and Emily begin to fray as the baby's birth draws near, a shocking turn of events and the secret Lina's been hiding threaten to break them apart forever. By turns funny, dark and sexy, Every Kind of Wanting strips bare the layers of the American family today. Tackling issues such as assimilation, the legacy of secrets, the morality of desire, and ultimately who owns love, the characters across all ethnicities, nationalities, and sexualities are blisteringly alive.
