Description
							From the author of the beloved novel The Giant’s House comes a beautiful collection of nine new stories. In “Property,” a young scholar, grieving the sudden death of his wife, decides to refurbish a rental house by removing his landlord’s possessions. In “Peter Elroy: A Documentary by Ian Casey,” the household of a successful filmmaker is visited years later by his famous first subject, whose trust he betrayed. In “The Lost & Found Department of Greater Boston,” the manager of a grocery store becomes fixated on the famous case of a missing local woman. And in “Thunderstruck,” a family makes a quixotic decision to flee to Paris for a summer, only to find their lives altered in an unimaginable way by their teenage daughter’s risky behavior.

"These stories show people in some of their most unguarded moments, and Yuen's sensitive performance adds to the power of McCracken's prose." - AudioFile Magazine

A Best Book of 2014. "McCracken’s skewed perspectives make this a powerfully if quietly disturbing volume." - Kirkus Reviews

Starred review. “McCracken transforms life’s dead ends into transformational visions.” - Publishers Weekly
