The author makes up a Jewish family and here a quote from her, ā€œIā€™d heard about families with children conceived by in vitro fertilization who have additional children years later from leftover embryos, and I found this really fascinating. I was especially interested in the impact on the later child of learning that their family has essentially begun without them.ā€ The Latecomer touches on the topics of grief and guilt, generational trauma, privilege and race, traditions and religion, and family dynamics.

 The title was A New York Times Notable Book of 2022; A Washington Post Notable Work of Fiction; An NPR Best Book of the Year; and A New Yorker Best Book of 2022.
