At Small’s, on a little island off Long Island, Albertine runs the hotel while Peter works quietly on his memoirs, but the future of the hotel, and of every gift Peter dreams of giving Albertine, is in jeopardy. Business has fallen off and the old hotel is falling down. Bills are mounting. Foreclosure looms. What Peter does to save the hotel, his marriage, and possibly his life involves storytelling, friendship, memory, electrical contraptions, and great, abiding love. • “Kraft’s take on the national experience is thoughtful,disturbing, and unlike that of any other American writer.” — Anthony Brandt, Men’s Journal • “Each apparently innocent anecdote chimes with Kraft’s broader theme of the imagined life, of its thrilling, enhancing, and ultimately dangerous connection to the real.” — Claire Messud, Newsday • “A wonderful matryoshka of a novel . . . with just the sort of spectacular intricacy that makes a business fail and a novel fly.” — The New Yorker • LENGTH: novel
