Commonwealth

by Ann Patchett

A powerful story of two families brought together by beauty and torn apart by tragedy, the new novel by the Orange Prize-winning author of Bel Canto and State of Wonder is her most astonishing yet.

Reviewed by Ben at Angus & Robertson Bookworld:
Commonwealth is Ann Patchett’s seventh work of fiction. In this novel, the author plays with the uneasy family bonds formed by the merging of two families after Beverly Keating relocates to Virginia be with a new man in the 1960s. 

Told in episodic chunks of sharp, welcoming prose, this book explores different experiences of dislocation its characters have, particularly in the face of family tragedy. You’ll drink up the extended scenes of great dialogue listing between humour and melancholy but also be kept on your toes by the many leaps in time and perspective Patchett keeps slotting in.

Evolving at the end of the book is a terrific discourse on family love and its relationship with shared memory. A very intelligent book, worthy of Patchett’s award-winning stature, and one we're thrilled to have as our Book of the Month.
