In a city graveyard, a resident unrolls a threadbare Persian carpet between two graves. On a concrete sidewalk, a baby appears quite suddenly, a little after midnight, in a crib of litter. In a snowy valley, a father writes to his five-year-old daughter about the number of people that attended her funeral. Roy's return to fiction is both love story and provocation. Its heroes, present and departed, have been broken by the world we live in and then mended by love.
