Adapted from the novel by Judith Guest
(1980 film adaptation won four Academy Awards, including Best Picture)
Conrad Jarrett had an older brother named Buck, and now Buck is gone. What's left of young Conrad's family, with his successful, well-intentioned father and his beautiful, organized and remote mother, is in terrible jeopardy, as is Conrad himself. They are all "ordinary people" and each is fighting a hard battle.
"The anxiety, despair and joy that is common to every human experience … if Conrad and his family are ordinary people, why then so are we all."
— The New York Times
