The Year of Ice: A Novel by Brian Malloy

It is 1978 in the Twin Cities, and Kevin Doyle, a high school senior, is a marginal student in love with keggers, rock and roll, and-unbeknownst to anyone else-a boy in his class with thick eyelashes and a bad attitude. His mother Eileen died two years earlier when her car plunged into the icy waters of the Mississippi River, and since then Kevins relationship with his father Patrick has become increasingly distant. As lonely women vie for his fathers attention, Kevin discovers Patricks own closely guarded secret: he had planned to abandon his family for another woman. More disturbingly, his mothers death may well have been a suicide, not an accident.Complicating the family dynamic is the constant meddling of Kevins outspoken Aunt Nora-who will never forgive Patrick for Eileens death-along with Patricks inability to stay single for very long. His loyalties divided between his father and his aunt, between his internal reality and his public persona, Kevin is forced to reevaluate his notions of family and love as painful truths emerge about both.
