A postmodern family saga by one of America’s freshest literary voices

Upon landing at Ellis Island in 1903, Esther and Hersh Lipshitz discover their son Reuven is missing. The child is never found, and decades later, Esther becomes convinced that the famous aviator Charles Lindbergh is her lost boy. Esther’s manic obsession spirals out of control, leaving far-reaching effects on the entire Lipshitz lineage. In the present, we meet T Cooper—the last living Lipshitz—who struggles to make sense of all that came before him and what legacy he might leave behind.

Unusual and avowedly postmodern . . . [A] compelling story. (The New York Times)

Rich characters and unforgettable scenes . . . This [is] one strange, funny story. (The Dallas Morning News)

[T Cooper’s] talent lies in [her] ability to capture the endlessly complex nature of families and their shared memories. (The Washington Post)
