Description:
Originally published: London: Jonathan Cape, 2014.
At the centre of Elizabeth McCracken's extraordinary stories is often a jagged space left by loss: a neighbourhood is haunted by a child's ghost, a librarian grapples with the mystery of a patron's death, a corner store manager obsesses over a missing woman, a son absconds forever with his parents' savings. But equally present are passion, charm, humour and joy: McCracken's prose captures all that is exquisite, strange and heartbreaking about our world in a way that has won her rare acclaim.
