Set in pre-9/11 Pittsburgh, Elegy for Sam Emerson commemorates a past that will abruptly end as the novel follows the fortunes of Sam Emerson, proprietor of an upscale Mount Washington restaurant with stunning views of the three rivers below. Middle-aged and nostalgic, Sam Emerson ruminates on his unconventional childhood as he faces the prospect of life without his much younger lover, and at the same time, deals with disposing of his mother's ashes and traveling to France to look for his father's unmarked grave.
