Description
 
A young woman searches for the truth about her father--and the secrets of her family--in this "big-hearted debut that absolutely crackles with smarts" (Emma Straub).

"A warm and funny debut novel . . . perceptive, wry, and witty."--The New York Times


Two years out of college, Ellie Adler has a job in journalism, an older lover, and a circle of smart friends. Her beloved father, James, who has children from three marriages, unites the family with his gentle humor and charisma, but Ellie has always believed she is her fathers favorite. When he suddenly dies, she finds herself devastated by the unexpected loss. Then, at the reading of his will, she learns that instead of leaving her his prized possession--a baseball that holds emotional resonance for them both--he has left her a seemingly ridiculous, even insulting gift. Worse, hes given the baseball to someone no one in the family has ever heard of.

In her grief, Ellie wonders who could have possibly meant more to her father than she did. Setting out to track this person down, she learns startling information about who her father really was and who she herself is becoming. Moving, witty, and unforgettable, The Catch is a story of the gifts were given over the course of a lifetime, by family, friends, and strangers--the ones we want and the ones that catch us unawares.
