An impressionistic novel with incredible visual detail--of the qualities that compose an intimately-known body, the accumulated objects and meals that make a home, the transitions of light that mark seasons and then decades. In lieu of a substantial plot, Salter delivers lists of evocative observations and sparse but perfect dialogue. From the 1950s through 70s, New York City to then-rural Westchester.
