"What a pleasure . . . His best nook since The Moviegoer . . . and among the most admirable American novels of the past few years."--The New Republic
"He is a beguiling, uniquely gifted novelist who deserves to be read in order and in full."--Newsweek
From the Inside Flap
Will Barrett, a lonely widower, suffers from a depression so strange and severe that he decides he doesn't want to continue living. But then he meets Allison, a mental hospital escapee making a new life for herself, living alone in a greenhouse. What follows is by turns touching and zany, tragic and comic, as Will goes in search of proof of God and winds up finding much more.
