By Nightfall by Michael Cunningham

In By Nightfall, Peter Harris is a middle-aged art dealer struggling to find the extraordinary in his mundane life. When his wife's younger brother, Ethan, also known as Mizzy (short for The Mistake since he was a late baby for his parents), comes to stay with them, it upends Peter's world. Mizzy is an ex-addict, complete with the deceit and secrets that accompany addiction, who is still trying to find direction in his life. When Peter agrees to mentor Mizzy, events cause Peter to question all his assumptions about his life. Michael Cunningham's novel has received mostly positive reviews with BookPage saying, "By Nightfall is the deeply felt story of the conflicted Peter, who ultimately discovers what he is willing to sacrifice for happiness."
