From the Publisher
A magical story of love and the isolation that defines the
modern condition - Andrew Kaufman pulls off the near impossible and
creates a wholly original allegorical tale that is both emotionally
resonant and outlandishly fun.
Rebecca Reynolds is a young woman with a most unusual and
inconvenient problem: no matter how hard she tries, she can't stop
her emotions from escaping her body and entering the world around
her. Luckily she's developed a nifty way to trap and store her
powerful emotions in personal objects - but how many shoeboxes can
a girl fill before she feels crushed by her past?
Three events force Rebecca to change her ways: the unannounced
departure of her husband, Stewart; the sudden death of Lisa, her
musician sister; and, while on her way to Lisa's funeral, a
near-crash with what appears to be a giant frogwoman recklessly
speeding in a Honda Civic.
Meanwhile, Lisa's inconsolable husband skips the funeral and flies
to Winnipeg where he begins a bizarre journey that strips him of
everything before he can begin to see a way through his grief… all
with the help of a woman who calls herself God.
