Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Summer '11 Reading Group List
“Henry is a writer whose first book was wildly successful. When harsh criticism greets his second work, he retreats from the literary world. A request for help by the author of a strangely compelling play draws him deeper and deeper into the bizarre reality of its writer. While this plot may seem simple, its many-faceted story draws readers into a complex drama of guilt and the attempt to justify a horrific past.”
-- Linda Walonen, Bay Books, San Ramon, CA
