Description: "Disobedience" is a warmly humorous, poignant novel about a young man, his mother's e-mail, and the often surprising path of infidelity. When Henry Shaw, a high school senior, stumbles upon his mother's e-mail account, he realizes that all is not as it seems. There, under the name Liza38, a name that Henry innocently established for her, is undeniable evidence that his mother is having an affair with a violin maker and unlikely paramour who nonetheless has a very appealing way with words and a romantic spirit that, in Henry's estimation, his own father woefully lacks.

Henry's father teaches history with a decidedly socialist tinge at the Chicago private school he and his sister, Elvira, attend. His mother is a loving, attentive wife and parent. Elvira, a little offbeat, is obsessed with Civil War reenactments and insists on dressing in handmade Union uniforms at inopportune timies. Henry's knowledge of his mother's secret life colors his own tentative explorations of love and sex and casts a new light on the arguments in which his parents regularly indulge. Over the course of his final year of high school, Henry observes each member of the family, trying to anticipate when they will find out about the infidelity and what the knowledge will mean to each of them. With her inimitable grace and compassion, Jane Hamilton has created a novel full of gentle humor and rich insights into the nature of love and the deep, mysterious bonds that hold families together.
