The Lathams seem to have it all: health, wealth and a vibrant family life.
As Mary Beth Latham contemplates a life built around home, friends and community, she has every reason to feel fulfilled and content.
Then, for one of her sons, a process of unravelling begins.
Mary Beth starts to focus on him, only to find that the comfortable life she has spent years carefully constructing is shattered in a single moment.
Forced to confront her own demons, Mary Beth realises how the inconsequential moments we all share - and one shameful act she has hidden from everybody - may have contributed to her fate. "Every Last One" is a mesmerising and devastating portrait of family life, and a testament to the power of a mother's love and determination.
It is Anna Quindlen's finest work to date.
