This debut novel is a slim treasure that, through the lives of a New England father and his son, quietly takes on nothing less than the measure of a life and the sublime and fearful notes that make it up. Harding lifts the face off small moments in quiet lives with a language both heartbreaking and exhilarating. -- Ty Wilson, Copperfield's Books, Sebastopol, CA
An astonishing first novel of memory, consciousness, and man's place in the natural world.
