Strangers At The Feast

"Family conflict, fascinating social commentary, and a riveting plot converge in Jennifer Vanderbes' stunning STRANGERS AT THE FEAST, a thriller that also raises large and haunting questions about the meaning of guilt, innocence, and justice."
— O, The Oprah Magazine


“Gorgeously written and uncompromising in its vision, STRANGERS AT THE FEAST is more than a great novel. It's an important one.”

— Justin Cronin, author of THE PASSAGE

"Vanderbes has written an absorbing and suspenseful story about the dynamics of family, generational misunderstandings, and the desperate ways one copes with both the arbitrariness of fate and the consequences of one's choices. "

— Library Journal, starred review

"Punctuated with sharp observations about class and race, about the winners and losers in America's power grabs, and about the ways a family can play out a culture's conflicts."
