Abstract:

In this novel, a marriage is revealed in all its joys and agonies. A mother, a father, and their two children, living in a small village in New England, move, in their own minds, between the present, the past, and the future, constrained by the world, the characters despairing in their domestic situations. But their minds wander, trying to make linear sense of what is, in fact, nonlinear. This is a piercing examination of the manifold ways in which the passing of time operates on the human consciousness.
