Fourth of July, 2005 — The Frankel family gathers to memorialize their son, a journalist, killed while working in Iraq (reminiscent of Daniel Pearl's 2002 murder). Each family member tries to find his/her place. Understanding Leo's death has changed the family forever.

An expert at capturing the intricate nuances of family relationships, Joshua Henkin skillfully leads us through his characters' emotional worlds in his book The World Without You.

An award-winning author with distinguished gifts, Henkin directs the MFA program in Fiction Writing at Brooklyn College.
