Sinopsis:

Simultaneously hilarious and heartbreaking, The Holiday Season and its companion piece, Love at the End of the Year are tender ruminations on the nature of family, the power of love, and a particularly complicated time of year.  In The Holiday Season, Jeff, Ted, and Frank Posey are still trying to figure out how to be a family three years after the death of the wife and mother who bound them together. As the year winds to a close and the holidays threaten to unearth the usual myriad of emotions and memories, hairline fractures in the Poseys’ relationships finally splinter and crack over what should be, but never are, simple dilemmas: where to spend the holidays and when it is finally time to break with old traditions. The second novella, Love at the End of the Year, is an intoxicating tale that weighs up love in all its many forms over the course of a single, magical Alabama New Year’s Eve.

Review:

"At the top of its class. This slim gem is . . . full of subtle realism. Knight doesn't just show. He paints. . . . He has a mastery of graceful and rhythmic prose, which he employs elegantly to make his humor stick. Capturing a world in a phrase, he creates wonderful narratives of troubled men and women, people we can empathize with during the heart of winter." -- Bookreporter.com

"During this holiday season, we're in good company with the insightful and entertaining Knight." -- USA Today

"Nobody writes about the contemporary Southern upper middle class as well as Michael Knight. [The Holiday Season is an] accurate reflection of real life and [a] testimony to Knight's subtle recognition of the complicated forces that steer people's lives. . . . No one who purchases The Holiday Season will be disappointed." -- the Mobile Register

"Quirky, humorous, smart, and sad, Knight gets to the heart of loneliness, family, and the hope of love without crying a river of false sentiment or cheer that fades with the season." -- Style Weekly

"There is a long tradition of fiction using holiday gatherings as a vehicle for examining relationships under stress. Richard Bausch recently used Thanksgiving this way; Truman Capote, Charles Dickens, Dylan Thomas all used Christmas. Michael Knight's The Holiday Season joins this crowded table and . . . makes itself at home." -- The New York Times Book Review
