A couple has lost their daughter, and they are beginning to lose one another, and this novel by Anna Enquist is the story of their seemingly, terribly normal lives and concerns becoming... something else.

Brilliantly written, and with a lyricism that makes one feel as if they're reading a narration of lives being lived rather than written, this is one of those books that is difficult to put aside. Short as it is, there's power in every page and every moment, and the calmness flowing through the language makes the actions and the emotions behind the characters all the more terrible, and all the more real.

For readers of literary fiction, or who read that first sentence of this review and are curious, I have to say: pick this up. I'm so glad to have discovered Enquist's writing, and this book won't be something I'll easily forget.

So, yes, I recommend it. ( )
