Staff Reviews


Set over a period of 24 hours, Run is the story of the
motherless Doyle family. Since their mother's death, Tip, Teddy and
Sullivan Doyle have been raised by their loving, possessive and
ambitious father. As the former mayor of Boston, Bernard Doyle wants to
see his sons in politics, a dream the boys have never shared. But when
an argument in a blinding snowstorm inadvertently causes an accident
that involves a stranger and her child, all Bernard cares about is
keeping all his children safe. As Janet Maslin in her September 2007
review of Run said, "Ms. Patchett creates a genuinely rich landscape of
human possibility, and gives her readers much to contemplate when
genetics, privilege, opportunity and nurture come into play." I love
everything written by Ann Patchett. . .and this book is no exception.
