"If prayer were the most beautiful and intelligent questions in the world, all posed to an interested God, about family, and why we are here, about marriage between nature and art, then this book is a prayer, the deepest possible prayer, and one that lives in the reader’s heart forever." — Rebecca Lee, author of Bobcat and Other Stories
