A beautifully wrought story of an ad hoc family and the crisis they must overcome togetherEdith is a widowed landlady who rents apartments in her Brooklyn brownstone to an unlikely collection of humans, all deeply in need of shelter. Crippled in various waysin spirit, in mind, in body, in heartthe renters struggle to navigate daily existence and soon come to realize that Ediths deteriorating mind, and the menacing presence of her estranged, unscrupulous son, Owen, is the greatest challenge they must confront together.Faced with eviction by Owen and his designs on the building, the tenantsPaulie, an unusually disabled man, and his burdened sister, Claudia; Edward, a misanthropic stand-up comic; Adeleine, a beautiful agoraphobe; Thomas, a young artist recovering from a strokemust find in one another what the world has not yet offered or has taken from them: family, respite, security, worth, love.The threat to their home scatters them far from where theyve begun, to an ascetic commune in Northern California, the motel rooms of depressed middle America, and a stunning natural phenomenon in Tennessee, endangering their lives and their visions of themselves along the way.With humanity, humor, grace, and striking prose, Kathleen Alcott portrays these unforgettable characters in their search for connection, for a life worth living, for home.
