Unlikely to arrive before Christmas
Living on Long Island's fast developing East End, local builder Michael Dorian is forced to reckon: with a building industry being overrun by Manhattan developers; with a failing marriage and teenage daughter riddled with anxiety; with the nature of a hauntingly beautiful place that offers opportunity but no longer feels like home.
Sparrow Beach is about the dark cloud of excess that threatens to consume Long Island's East End, and about the patchwork of characters that live beneath it, those who adapt, finding new paths amidst the changing landscape, and those who refuse to.
Shelby Raebeck grew up in Amagansett on the East End of Long Island, worked and studied in various places around the U.S., including Louisiana, Virginia, Utah, and California, and returned to the East End in 2000. His stories have been published in literary magazines, anthologies, and textbooks, both in the U.S. and abroad, and he is the author of the short story collection, Louse Point: Stories from the East End. Sparrow Beach is his first novel.
