  • "In Enon, Paul Harding has written a powerful, deeply moving and brilliant successor to Tinkers, a debut that John Freeman on NPR called "a masterpiece." Drawn always to the rich landscape of his characters' inner lives, here, through the first-person narrative of Charlie Crosby (grandson to George Crosby of Tinkers), Harding creates a devastating portrait of a father desperately trying to come to terms with the loss of his beloved thirteen-year-old daughter, killed in an accident. Through a distilled mosaic of memory and fantasy, Crosby struggles through the aftermath of this tragedy, seeking some measure of reconciliation."@en
