Publisher's Summary

Anthony Doerr, a Guggenheim Fellow, has had his fiction honored with three O. Henry Prizes and the Rome Prize, among other accolades. This collection’s titular story won the National Magazine Award for Fiction, and each poignant tale touches in some way on the elusiveness of memory and on humans’ daily interactions with fleeting - and not so fleeting - remembrances.

hard to pick a favorite story

each short story was powerful with lush narratives that were easy to sink in to and visualize. the producers did a great job of matching the readers' voices to the content and tone of the story. I've listened to a number of books now and this is the first one I thought I'd listen to again. Anthony Doerr is one of my favorite writers, and this is right at the top for me. I hope you enjoy it too.
