The Remnants
The Remnants | Robert Hill
5 posts | 1 read | 11 to read
The town of New Eden, peopled with hereditary oddities, has arrived at its last days. As two near-centenarian citizens prepare for their annual birthday tea, a third vows to interrupt the proceedings with a bold declaration. The Remnants cartwheels through the lives of wood-splitters, garment-menders, and chervil farmers, while exposing an electrical undercurrent of secrets, taboos, and unfulfilled longings. With his signature wit and wordplay, Robert Hill delivers a bittersweet gut-buster of an elegy to the collective memory of a community.

Just a handful of the treasures at this weekend's Portland publisher warehouse sale! Six local publishers, hundreds of good books, and one gracious neighborhood bookstore (the lovely Another Read Through here in town). Fun to watch folks leave with stacks & stacks of books all weekend. #getindie

Today's tiny book haul. The sweet thing is The Remnants had a shelf talker that sounded interesting, so I grabbed the front copy and behind it was a signed copy. Yay! The weird thing was I didn't listen to All the Books until AFTER we left. I think @Liberty and @rebeccaschinsky are in my head!

Reviews say Robert creates relatable characters larger than life with excellent developing personalities. Sounds like the perfect read to me! #TBR 📚
