"Yannick Murphy, while being one of our most daring andoriginal writers, is first and foremost an exquisitely attuned observer ofhuman behavior. . . . Murphy's work provides pretty much unexceededreading pleasure." --Dave Eggers

Thewarm, wry, and patient voice of a veterinarian father tells the heartfelt storyof his young New England family enduring a moving trial of loyalty, hope, andfaith after they are confronted with an unthinkable crisis. Acclaimed author Yannick Murphy's intimate narrative style and lovely prosewill enthrall readers of Rivka Galchen,Padgett Powell, and Murphy's own Signed, Mata Hari.The Call is a "triumph of quiet humorand understated beauty" (Publishers Weekly, starred review) from anauthor that the New York Times Book Review calls "an extraordinarilygifted fabulist."
