Description
From the author of the beloved novel The Giant's House comes a beautiful new story collection. 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.

reviews
      • premium: False
      • source: Publishers Weekly
      • content: Starred review. "McCracken transforms life's dead ends into transformational visions."
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: The slight roughness to narrator Erin Yuen's voice is well suited to this outstanding collection of nine short stories that share themes of death and loss. Yuen's vocal flexibility stretches from a whispery flow to augment the tense and creepy moments (as in "Something Amazing," about missing children) to a quick staccato to catch the rhythm of the faster-paced stories (for example, "Juliet," about a library patron). The many characters offer a platform for Yuen to create a range of distinct voices--from a toddler's lispy outrage to a grandmother's light scolding. These stories show people in some of their most unguarded moments, and Yuen's sensitive performance adds to the power of McCracken's prose. C.B.L. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine
