Carolyn Parkhurst will be at Square Books to sign copies of The Nobodies Album.
Carolyn Parkhurst (The Dogs of Babel, Lost and Found) starts The Nobodies Album with “Some stories, once told, won’t let you go so easily.” This book is full of ‘em, like nesting dolls, story after story. Widow and writer Ocatavia Frost has boldly rewritten the endings to all her books (they’re part of the novel), reconciling her own past in the process by uncloaking the personal pain embedded within them. Just as she’s finished the manuscript of these revised endings, her famous—and estranged—rock-star son is accused of murder. As the new book endings hint to a great tragedy in her life, Octavia gathers up the loose threads in her relationship with her son and subsequently mends her own broken heart. Cleverly presented, heart-wrenching, insightful—and a satisfying murder mystery to boot. SLM
