Description

“Covid-19 stole so much. But one of the things it couldn’t steal was the power of stories.”

From the author of the international bestseller "The Headmaster's Wife" and other novels comes a collection of essays written during the Covid-19 pandemic while the author sheltered in place in his tiny Vermont town.
