This novel of Pittsburgh, by the author of Last Night at the Lobster, “celebrates the lives of everyday people in an extraordinary way” (San Francisco Chronicle).

Pittsburgh, 1998: Chris “Crest” Tolbert is eighteen years old, a soon-to-be father, and partially paralyzed after an accident that left his best friend dead. As he navigates the challenges of new fatherhood and life as a paraplegic, Crest must also negotiate his relationships with his born-again brother and his father, who has been cheating on Crest’s mother with a younger man.

In Everyday People, acclaimed novelist Stewart O’Nan offers a multifaceted portrait of Crest and of East Liberty, the African American neighbourhood he calls home. The result is “a living, breathing history lesson that brings together a set of compelling voices that make real and immediate the ups and downs of a black urban community” (Chicago Tribune).

“Like Sherwood Anderson’s Winesburg, Ohio or Gloria Naylor’s Women of Brewster Place, Everyday People weaves its tale elliptically… . O’Nan creates vivid interior worlds, evoking conflicts and joys with astonishing grace and agility. ” —Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

    "Har precis startat en provperiod hos Storytel och det är det bästa jag någonsin gjort. Att lyssna ger mig full koncentration på boken samtidigt som jag kan pyssla med annat."

    "Det bästa som har hänt mig på länge. Dessutom lyssnar jag på böcker som jag nog aldrig hade kommit mig för att läsa annars. Jag lyssnar i bilen, på promenaden eller när jag städar."

    "Jag och min man delar familjeabonnemanget och har haft Storytel i 5-6 år. Vi är så nöjda med både appen och Readern. Här finns ett stort bokutbud som passar oss båda!"
