Away is a marvelous and odd book. The plot is strange and perhaps strained, but the writing is lyrical. And clearly this is one writer who does not need to be reminded to use all five senses.

“Seattle’s King Street Station is famous for two things, and no one tells Lillian about either one.”
Doesn’t that just make you want to read on?
