A superb portrait of family life, THE TENDER LAND is a love story unlike any other. The Finnerans – parents and five children, Irish Catholics in St. Louis – are a seemingly unexceptional family. Theirs is a story seldom told, yet it makes manifest how rich and truly extraordinary the ordinary daily experience we take for granted is. In quietly luminous language, Kathleen Finneran renders the emotional, spiritual, and physical terrain of family life – its closeness and disconnection, its intimacy and estrangement–and pays tribute to the love between parents and children, brothers and sisters.
