A Novel That Brings The Gritty Landscape Of Pittsburgh Alive, And Shakes Your Heart

Eighty Days of Sunlight is a coming-of-age novel that whirls around the gritty landscape of Pittsburgh, as Jason Han and his estranged brother reluctantly work together to figure out the mystery of their father’s suicide. It’s a roller-coaster of a novel with great attention to setting and lyricism similar to Chang Rae Lee’s Native Speaker and Michael Chabon’s The Mysteries of Pittsburgh. Author Robert Yune brings the City of Pittsburgh alive in a deeply dark and engaging manner while exploring themes of guilt, loss, and betrayal in a way that will particularly appeal to anyone that grew up in the Rust Belt.
