UpstateBook - 2018
In the years since his daughter Vanessa moved to America to become a professor of philosophy, Alan Querry has never been to visit. When Vanessa's boyfriend sends word that she has fallen into a severe depression and he's worried for her safety, Alan and daughter Helen fly to New York and take the train to Saratoga Springs. Over the course of six wintry days in upstate New York, the family begins to struggle with questions: Why do some people find living so much harder than others? Is happiness a skill that might be learned or a cruel accident of birth? Is reflection conducive to happiness or an obstacle to it?
