"Gripping."--Richard Russo, author of Empire Falls

"Shetterly's debut achieves a subtle grace, a quality of light and shadow worthy of a Bergman film."--Allegra Goodman, New York Times Book Review

"Pete and Alice in Maine is a tender, big-hearted, clear-eyed portrait of a marriage, and a family, in crisis--set during the plague years when the entire world was in crisis. As she investigates the insidious effect of lies, betrayal, fear, and anger, not to mention the mundane joys and wrenching heartaches of everyday life, Caitlin Shetterly gets to the heart of what it means to be a family." -- Christina Baker Kline, New York Times bestselling author of The Exiles

A powerful and beautifully written debut novel that intimately explores a fractured marriage and the struggles of modern parenthood, set against the backdrop of the chaotic spring of 2020.

Reeling from a painful betrayal in her marriage as the Covid pandemic takes hold in New York City, Alice packs up her family and flees to their vacation home in Maine. She hopes to find sanctuary--from the uncertainties of the exploding pandemic and her faltering marriage.

Putting distance between herself and the stresses and troubles of the city, Alice begins to feel safe and relieved. But the locals are far from friendly. Trapped and forced into quarantine by hostile neighbors, Alice sees the imprisoning structure of her lifein this new predicament. Stripped down to the bare essentials of survival and tending to the needs of her two children, she can no longer ignore all the ways in which she feels limited and lost--lost in the big city, lost as a wife, lost as a mother, lost as a daughter and lost as a person.

As the world shifts around her and the balance in her marriage tilts, Alice and her husband, Pete, are left to consider if what keeps their family safe is the same thing as what keeps their family together.

This Is Our City is a celebration of two decades of sports success in Boston from the cohost of the #1 sports radio show in New England, Felger & Mazz.

In Boston, sports loyalty--and passion--runs deep. With one team in each of the four major American professional leagues, the Red Sox, the Celtics, the Bruins, and the Patriots have long commanded undivided attention. But for much of the 20th century, the records of the local teams were mixed, with some victories but also heartbreaking losses and endless talk of curses. And then, things changed. Over twenty years, Boston was blessed with an extraordinary run of success, including 12 championships, 7 runners-up, and many more years of heated contention. In the 21st century, Boston became the hub of the sports universe.

According to Tony Massarotti, a longtime Boston sports columnist and host of the #1 sports radio show in New England, this is not a coincidence. This Is Our City paints a portrait of 20 years in Boston sports, showing how one team's success has led to the next--how they have fed off one another, tried to one-up one another, and supported one another. From Brady and Belichick to the Celtics' Big Three, from Big Papi to the Big Bad Bruins, this was a special time. And Boston's run played out against major events such as 9/11 and the devastating Boston Marathon bombing--which led to a memorably profane speech by David Ortiz, who declared, "This is our f@#king city!" Massarotti's This Is Our City is a valentine to Boston sports and a comprehensive story of a remarkable run.
