His elderly mother putters in the rooms below, until her death. And it is then that Jeremy is forced to take in Mary Tell and her child as boarders. Mary is unaware of how much courage it takes Jaremy to look her in the eye. For Jeremy, like one of his paper creations, is fragile and easily torn--especially when he's falling in love....

Anne Tyler was 33 when she wrote this mesmerizing 1974 novel (her 5th), which first gained her national recognition. Anne takes us deep into the haunted mind of a recluse artist who‘s severely panic-stricken at the thought of leaving his creative space to face the real world. Yet his unique perceptions make us wonder about our own reality. It‘s one of Anne‘s favorites and now it‘s definitely mine, too! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
